So Pretty

“As a document of its moment in time, place and political conjuncture, So Pretty is already of inestimable value, but the film is also marked by assured, sensitive direction and a visual flair that at times matches the intensity of its literary inspiration.”

SYNOPSIS

We are proud to present this film with Queensland Film Festival.

Four young queers in New York City struggle to maintain their proto-utopian community against the outside world as their lives curiously merge with the 1980's German novel so schön by Ronald M. Schernikau. An investigation of leftist politics and femme identity in the context of an increasingly right wing world, So Pretty moves freely between fictional depictions and semi-documentary, adaptation and translation, looking towards the artistic and personal worlds its characters generate across time and culture as a space for new tensions and potentials.

When Imani goes to her friend's housewarming party, she meets a boy who piques her interest. She invites him over to hang out while she gets ready for another party, only to realise that they have more in common than she thought.

​This film was produced with an entirely trans cast and crew, and offers a look at a healthy trans romantic relationship.
