LITTLE GIRL (88 NR)

LITTLE GIRL

SUMMARY

LITTLE GIRL is the moving portrait of 7-year-old Sasha, who has always known that she is a girl. Sasha’s family has recently accepted her gender identity, embracing their daughter for who she truly is while working to confront outdated norms and find affirmation in a small community of rural France. Realized with delicacy and intimacy, Sébastien Lifshitz’s documentary poetically explores the emotional challenges, everyday feats, and small moments in Sasha’s life.

DIRECTOR: Sébastien Lifshitz


 

REVIEW

“The exquisite intensity, tenderness and occasional moments of anger did not let up and Lifshitz’s film-making was often sublime.”
