17th February - 18th February
After appearing as a woman in one of his wife’s paintings, Danish artist Elinar Wegener begins to change his appearance, re-naming his female alter ego Lili Elbe and ultimately attempting one of the first male-to-female gender reassignment surgeries. A tragic period love story, loosely inspired by the lives of Elinar and Gerda Wegener, focusing on the ways their marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili’s ground-breaking journey as a transgender pioneer in the 1930s.
