Happy and healthy seven-year-old Sasha has always identified as a girl. Initially resistant, her parents have come to embrace what Sasha has known all along, and so begins their journey together in a slow-to-adapt world.

“An extraordinary documentary that achieves a remarkable degree of intimacy with its young subject and her family … a very illuminating, trans-positive work.” – Leslie Felperin, Guardian

Little Girl is a profound and heartrending portrait of Sasha’s everyday struggles to be recognized by her school, her peers, and her small community in Northeastern France, as well as a larger look at gender identity and the power of family. Beautifully crafted and intimately photographed, with a structure that evokes a narrative film as much as a documentary, Cannes award-winner Sébastien Lifshitz’s (Bambi, Wild Side) latest gem offers compassionate insight into the pains, joys, and simple yet sublime victories Sasha experiences in her search for acceptance. (Dir. by Sebastian Lifshitz, 2020, France/Denmark, in French with English subtitles, 90 mins., Not Rated)
