Femenina: A Virtual Screening & Discussion with Director Ilana Garcia-Mittleman

The Dougherty Arts Center invites you to a virtual screening of the award winning short film Femenina, followed by an interactive discussion with director Ilana Garcia Mittleman and Bears Rebecca Fonte, Artistic Director of aGLIFF (All Genders & Lifestyles International Film Festival).

Femenina follows Nick, a boxer who lives his life in the ring, and Nina, the newest member to join the boxing gym. As they forge a relationship, Nick’s perception of his own sexuality is called into question when he realizes that Nina is transgender.

“Femenina is the love story I hope to have for myself,” Garcia-Mittleman writes. “It is the film that embodies the future I see for transgender women. One where we are loved and valued for who we are and not what we are. This film is the love story I have never had or seen, but always needed.”
