A Fantastic Woman

A groundbreaking, captivating and life-affirming story about a trans woman’s fight for acceptance, anchored by a powerhouse central performance from rising star Daniela Vega. 

Vega plays Marina Vidal, a young singer whose life is thrown into turmoil following the sudden death of her partner, Orlando. Met with suspicion from the police and contempt from her lover’s relatives, Marina finds herself placed under intense scrutiny, with no regard for her privacy, or her grief.

Oscar-nominated and widely adored, A Fantastic Woman is a courageous, audacious and defiant declaration of Marina’s status as a woman – and a fantastic one, at that.

There will be a special launch party on Friday 2nd March at Tribeca and a special Q&A screening of the film on Sunday 4th March at HOME alongside a special pop up performance inspired by the film by Grace Oni Smith and Kate O Donnel on evening of Monday 26th Feb in the HOME cafe bar.
