Spain 1972

With José Luis López Vázquez, Julieta Serrano, Antonio Ferrandis
80min
35mm
English subtitles

It’s surprising to learn that a film about a transgender man was even made in Francoist Spain, and more so that it isn’t a tragic cautionary tale. This sensitive exploration of transition in middle age could also be interpreted as an intersex story. Nominated for an Oscar® in 1973, the film isn’t perfect but it refreshingly avoids most of the usual clichés and clangers expected of the time.

The screening on Tuesday 9 January will be introduced by BFI Flare programmer Zorian Clayton.
