‘A poignant and energetic Brazilian drama that turns a potentially bleak subject into a warmhearted study of genetics, gender and the true meaning of home' – Hollywood Reporter

Pierre is confident, happy and revels in exploring different gender expressions. He is in a band and sleeps with both men and women. When he is forced to live with his biological family after discovering that he was stolen from the maternity ward as a baby his life is turned upside down. His new family isn't too keen on his penchant for dresses and painted nails. This award-winning film offers a nuanced and intelligent look at family right up until the final shot. Anna Muylaert's film is another addition to the already strong queer cinema coming out of Brazil.

Portuguese with English subtitles. Screens with short Buddy (10 mins).
