My Life in Pink (Ma vie en rose)

Saturday, August 20, 2022
3:30 pm–5:00 pm
Harry and Mildred Remis Auditorium (Auditorium 161)
Ticket Required

Directed by Alain Berliner (Belgium, 1997, 89 min.). Presented on 35mm film. French with English subtitles.

Celebrate a crowd-pleasing jewel of queer cinema on its 25th anniversary with a special screening presented by MFA Film and Wicked Queer.

Six-year-old Ludo knows she’s a girl despite being assigned male at birth. She loves pretty dresses and daydreams in vivid candy colors about escaping her drab life in the French suburbs with a life-sized Barbie-ish doll named Pam. But the adults in Ludo’s community can’t accept her identity, and she is faced with the same callous ostracism familiar to many trans children. Can Ludo’s family learn to accept her true gender despite their neighbors’ judgement? Twenty-five years after its release, My Life in Pink is still urgently relevant—and its message of hope is as necessary as ever.

“Remarkably spunky and upbeat.... Part social realism, part human comedy, part family drama, and part storybook fantasy, Ma vie en rose is an original, thought-provoking, and entertaining piece of work.” —Austin Chronicle
