We spoke with filmmaker Sebastian Lelio and transgender actress Danila Vega about the making of A Fantastic Woman and how they got the idea to make a film about a transgender actress. The film is about love and politics of identity.
Last week A Fantastic Woman won an Oscar in the foreign language film category and created film history for Chile. This was the first time a Chilean film won an Oscar. This was also the first film with a transgender actress in lead.

A highlight from our upcoming interview with Chilean filmmaker Sebastian Lelio and transgender actress Danila Vega. I got to ask them a couple of questions from the famous Proust Questionnaire. We have a longer interview coming up with Lelio and Vega.
Lelio’s film A Fantastic Woman is Chile’s entry in the best foreign-language film category for the 2018 Oscars. The film stars Vega and how she deals with the sudden death of her lover played by Francisco Reyes.
A Fantastic Woman releases in early February 2018 in the San Francisco Bay area.
