CGiii Comment

Despite the atrocious wig and some bizarre camera angles and lenses...this has a damn fine aesthetic.

It is a mightily ambitious film...with most [not all] of the risks paying of...Tathagata Ghosh is a director with vision...and, this vision is a disturbing one!


Trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

A heady, ambitious film in which a young transwoman eschews social and cultural pressures at every stage of self-realisation.
