I saw this film when it came out in the theaters back in 1997; I fell in love with the little boy who plays the protaganist in the film. Really great movie…
Dir. Alain Berliner, 1997, France/Belgium/UK, 88 min.Ludo is a six-year-old who was assigned as a boy at birth, but who does not identify as a boy. As a hopeful and sensitive child, Ludo truly believes that a miraculous transformation into a girl will happen someday soon. Ludo’s family begins to realize with horror that this desire to be a girl isn’t just a child’s role-playing fantasy. The situation turns into a real-life drama of intense reactions from family, neighbors, friends, and teachers, culminating in an uplifting and hopeful ending.
Plus: a sneak peek at clips of the pre-Stonewall trans documentary QUEENS AT HEART, the Outfest Legacy Projectâ€™s newest restoration project
