Have you ever imagined what it would be like to go to sleep as a woman and wake up as a man? What would be the first thing you’d do? (Okay, us too. But then what?) What if, for the first time, you suddenly felt as though your new body was the one you were always meant to have?
Swedish filmmaker Alexandra-Therese Keining (director of the lesbian classic Kiss Me) returns with Girls Lost, a tender coming-of-age film that is enveloped in supernatural allure. This sumptuous feast will dazzle the senses with striking visuals, a heart-pounding score and piercing social commentary.
Three teenage girls, Kim, Bella and Momo, are social outcasts. Relentlessly bullied by classmates and abandoned by their teachers, they discover a mysterious flower that attracts butterflies and smells of vanilla, its black leaves oozing a liquid that the girls daringly drink. They wake up as boys. Endearing, thought-provoking and sensual, Girls Lost will help you revisit your confusing teenage years, while sparking interesting conversation on gender and sexuality.
