Dir: Sergio Toledo (Brazil, 1986, 35mm, 92 min.)

Frequently requested by festival audiences, Vera features one of the most affecting transgendered protagonists in film history. Introduced to butch/femme roles in a state-run orphanage, Vera finds strength to face the world outside in her identification as a man. In respectable Brazilian society, all of Vera's choices are impossible; homosexuality is taboo, gender barriers are rigidly guarded, transsexuality is an aberration. Vera's defiance and her alienation - even from her tender girlfriend - provide no easy emotional or social solutions.
