“A FANTASTIC WOMAN”- From Chile. Synopsis: Marina and Orlando are in love and planning for the future. After celebrating Marina’s birthday one evening, Orlando falls seriously ill and dies just after arriving at the hospital. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, suddenly Marina is treated with suspicion and scorn. Marina is a trans woman and for most of Orlando’s family, her sexual identity is an aberration, a perversion. So Marina struggles for the right to be herself. She battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now – a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman. Rated-R - 100 min. - English subtitles Trailer

If one considers film an art form, and one subscribes to the maxim about art imitating life, then a fine film like THE INSULT is an excellent example. It is also an “everyman’s” story. Lebanon's submission for "Best Foreign Language Film," was aptly selected as one of five nominees at the 2018 Oscars. The film was Mountain Shadow's selection for March, 2018.
