Glasgow Film Festival
The Garden Left Behind

Sat 7 March 2020

Flavio Alves SXSW Audience Award-winner is a poignant portrait of a trans woman confronted by a world that struggles to accept her. Tina (Carlie Guevara) is an undocumented Mexican-born trans woman living in New York with her beloved grandmother Eliana (Miriam Cruz). Tina is full of positive energy in the face of many obstacles, including boyfriend Jason (Alex Kruz) who refuses to introduce her to his family. Unsentimental and very touching, Tina’s trials illuminate the prejudices faced by a wider community in a film where all the trans characters are played by trans actors.

Also screening on Fri 6 Mar, 8.30pm
