"Little Girl" ("Petite fille")
(Sébastien Lifshitz, 2020, 100 min, France, French with English subtitles, Color, DCP)
"Little Girl" is the moving portrait of 7-year-old Sasha, who has always known that she is a girl. Sasha's family has recently accepted her gender identity, embracing their daughter for who she truly is while working to confront outdated norms and find affirmation in a small community of rural France. Realized with delicacy and intimacy, Sébastien Lifshitz's documentary poetically explores the emotional challenges, everyday feats, and small moments in Sasha's life.
