In Detail

"Come, come! I'm sick to death of this particular self. I want another."

Taking Virginia Woolf's novel ‘Orlando: A Biography’ as its starting point, Preciado has fashioned this documentary as a personal essay, historical analysis, and social manifesto which premiered and took home four prizes at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival.

For almost a century, Woolf's eponymous hero/heroine has inspired readers for their gender fluidity across physical and spiritual metamorphoses over a 300-year lifetime.

Not content to simply update a seminal work, Preciado interrogates the relevance of Orlando in the continuing struggle against anti-trans ideologies and in the fight for global trans rights.
