The Latin American Film Festival presents,"A Fantastic Woman" a film from Chile that has won awards all over the world. The film will be screened on Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 7 pm through Zoom.

A Fantastic Woman is the personal odyssey of one trans woman moving through the first days of loss. Director and co-screenwriter Lelio has said "A Fantastic Woman is not simply a cause film. It is a film meant to transcend genre. In fact, he is quoted as saying he wanted to make a trans-genre film about a transgender woman".

In "A Fantastic Woman" he incorporates elements of a fantasy, a thriller, a character study, and a ghost story. We will have a minute of silence for the transgender, queer, and nonbinary community, to call attention to the discrimination and hate crime against them.
