Estibaliz Urresola Solaguren / ES, 2023 / 129 min.

Everyone sees eight-year-old Aitor as a boy – except Aitor himself. During a long summer holiday with family in the Basque country, Aitor decides that he is Lucía – a girl. This feature debut by Estíbaliz Urresola Solaguren is a sensitive, relaxed portrait of a search for identity.

It seems so simple. You look like a boy, and everyone calls you by a boy’s name. But what if a child feels – or in fact, knows for sure – that they are a girl? This is the issue tacked in this feature debut by Basque director Estíbaliz Urresola Solaguren.
