2020 / documentary / France / original title : PETITE FILLE / 85’ / Color / status : completed / French / long feature-film / International catalog

7-year-old Sasha has always known she was a little girl, even though she was born a boy.

As society fails to treat her like the other children her age – in her daily life at school, dance lessons or birthday parties – her supportive family leads a constant battle to make her difference understood and accepted.


Multi-award winner Sébastien Lifshitz (4 selections in Cannes and 4 selections in Berlin) follows Sasha and her family for a year, capturing with his insightful, delicate and subtle camera their truly moving moments of joy and the many challenges they face together.
