Little Girl (Petite fille)
(Sébastien Lifshitz, 2020, 100 min, France, French with English subtitles, Color, DCP)

Little Girl is the moving portrait of 7-year-old Sasha, who has always known that she
is a girl. Sasha’s family has recently accepted her gender identity, embracing their
daughter for who she truly is while working to confront outdated norms and find
affirmation in a small community of rural France. Realized with delicacy and intimacy,
Sébastien Lifshitz’s documentary poetically explores the emotional challenges, everyday
feats, and small moments in Sasha’s life.


Sponsored by the Duke Center for French & Francophone Studies. Made possible by generous support from FACE Foundation.
