Winner of Queer Palm, FIPRESCI Prize, Un Certain Regard Prize for Best Performance (Victor Polster), Un Certain Regard Golden Camera (Lukas Dhont)

A pre-op 15-year-old transgender girl Lara (Victor Polster) is determined and committed to becoming a professional ballerina. With the support of her father (Arieh Worthalter), she throws herself into this quest for the absolute at a new school. Lara’s adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she realises her body does not bend so easily to the strict discipline because she was born as a boy. GIRL is about Lara’s psychological struggle of self-acceptance as she waits impatiently for her body to be the girl she’s always wanted to be.
