Lê Ánh Phong grew up in a small town in the centre of Vietnam – the youngest of six children. From the time he was a young boy, Phong felt like he was a girl with a mismatched boy’s body. Not until he moved to Hanoi to attend university at age 20 did Phong discover that he was not the only one in the world with this predicament. His dream to ‘find himself’ by physically changing sex becomes a reality several years later. The movie follows Phong’s struggle during these years, with excerpts from his intimate video journal, along with his encounters with family, friends and doctors – all of whom must come to terms with the boy’s determination to become a complete girl.

This film is in Vietnamese with English subtitles. 

This screening is followed by a Q&A with Lê Ánh Phong.
