Synopsis

In a world of fixed positions and prescribed roles, claiming your own sense of gender can be challenging and sometimes scary. Christina Willings’ documentary Beauty explores the lives of five gender-creative kids, each uniquely engaged in shaping their ideas of what it means to be fully human. Free-flowing animated elements draw together the kids’ shared experiences in beautifully rendered fantasias, honouring and celebrating the power of imagination and the flourishing force of self-determination.
