Synopsis

Seven-year-old Sasha has always identified as a girl. Initially resistant, her parents have come to embrace what Sasha has known all along, and so begins their journey together in a slow-to-adapt world. A stand-out at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, Little Girl is a profound and heartrending portrait of Sasha’s everyday struggles to be recognized by her school, her peers, and her small community in Northeastern France. Beautifully crafted and intimately photographed, Cannes award-winner Sébastien Lifshitz’s latest gem offers compassionate insight into the pains, joys, and simple yet sublime victories Sasha experiences in her search for acceptance.

“[Lifshitz] has become a documentarian of such skill and confidence that his films feel increasingly light on their feet while at the same time gaining in depth and emotional resonance.”
