A Fantastic Woman is coming to London! (about a trans woman’s fight for acceptance)

Good afternoon, 

I’m getting in touch as I thought GPN might be interested in our upcoming screenings in London of incredible new film, A Fantastic Woman.

The Oscar-winning A Fantastic Woman is a groundbreaking, captivating and life-affirming story about a trans woman’s fight for acceptance, anchored by a powerhouse central performance from rising star Daniela Vega. 

Vega plays Marina Vidal, a young singer whose life is thrown into turmoil following the sudden death of her partner. Facing harassment and suspicion from both her partner’s family and the authorities, A Fantastic Woman is a defiant declaration of Marina’s status as a woman – and a fantastic one, at that.

We would like to invite you to share details about our screenings of A Fantastic Woman with your network.  We would really appreciate your help in spreading the word about this timely and timeless film.

The screenings will take place at the following venues:
