The New Man – tilde Trans & Gender Diverse Film Festival

The New Man tildetilde Trans & Diverse Film Festival is on again from 13 to 15 November. Our friends at tilde are giving away a double pass to Session 3 of the Festival, The New Man.

At the tender age of 12, Roberto supported the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua and fought for education and social reforms. Roberto was to continue the political struggle, fighting alongside the communist Tupamaros in Uruguay. Thirty years later she struggles to live her life as a woman named Stephanía. Documentary filmmaker Aldo Garay has followed Stephanía for over 20 years. In The New Man he provides a personal and tender portrait of a woman who looks back on a tempestuous life in which violence, drugs, sex work and political commitment all found their place. The picture of society that emerges is as diverse as it is intimate.
