Maria Luiza

Why watch this movie?

Documentary that delivers a great question: after all, what makes someone a man or a woman? This question has been relevant in recent years and has become quite complex. Director Marcelo Díaz makes us reflect on gender identity with the great ‘Maria Luiza’. Showered with beauty, especially for the respect with which the story praises the figure of Maria Luiza, the first transgender woman in the Brazilian Armed Forces, this film shows how national productions manage to show the strength of LGBTQ+ culture in a very poetic way. 'Maria Luiza' joins 'Divinas Divas', 'Meu Corpo é Politico', 'Indianara', 'Fabiana' and other Brazilian feature films that give visibility to trans people.
