Almost 30 years after their friend Antonia’s death, a group of trans women return to the abandoned home they used to live in in the outskirts of Milan. Through recollections of moments shared and the women’s own stories, they try to give Antonia back the identity that was stolen from her.

The group’s vitality not only makes space for important discussions about trans rights and identity, but also gives deeply insightful depictions on the life of trans women in 1980s Italy.

This screening is introduced by season curator Emma Carleschi, followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with director Roberta Torre.

This film is in Italian with English subtitles. Content warnings: transphobia, addiction, death, grief.
