Little Girl

Sasha is a little girl born as a boy in a small town in France. “When I grow up, I’ll be a girl,” Sasha tells her parents. When Sasha is 7 years old, her parents have realized that this was not just a phase. They do their utmost to make society accept her for who she is, but the understanding and acceptance from the school, the dance school and the parents of the other children is lacking. This touching film sheds light on a very current and important topic that creates strong engagement, and contributes to debate with a perspective that in many ways has been lacking. One which is absolutely crucial to think about how we as a society should relate to gender dysphoria; namely how this is experienced for the child.
