“Le favolose is a free, personal and unconventional documentary.”
In the documentary, we see five trans friends gather to commemorate their friend Antonia, also trans, who was buried by her family in male clothing, denying her identity.
The deprivation of identity that transgender people suffer at the moment of death is the thematic centre of gravity on and around which the documentary revolves and develops.
