Directed by Henrique Goldman

Based on a book and true story, PRINCESA reveals a different immigrant experience. Teenage transvestite Fernanda’s dream was to become a woman. So she left Brazil to become Princesa, joining the largely immigrant community of Milan’s trans street prostitutes, in hopes of earning money for a sex-change operation. Then she met the man of her dreams… A lively and celebratory journey of self-discovery, PRINCESA features a largely non-professional cast who had a hand in devising the script.We are pleased to welcome director Henrique Goldman for Q&A following the 6.15pm screening on Sun 3 Oct.
