The second of two trans-themed shorts programs goes deep into specific aspects of the trans experience, from unresolved issues of childhood pain and broken friendship, to an exploration of the beauty standard from the point of view of a transgender surgeon, to a gorgeous and ecstatic vision of Ballroom as it exists in French Guyana.

Lasseindra Ninja, the main character of the film, is a professional transgenre dancer born in 1986. She’s a well-known artist in France’s voguing scene. After building her career through the balls of New York, France and Brazil, among many other main stages, she comes back to her home country to introduce voguing in French Guiana. By the means of her workshop, we catch a glance of its emergence and its impact on self-empowerment for a consolidating LGBTQ community. A glimpse of self-liberation and freedom of expression through the body. Directed by Audrey Jean-Baptiste | 2019 | 46 min | French Guyana | French with English subtitles
