Stretching the traditional bounds of love & friendship, Wild Side tells the story of Stéphanie, a transsexual who returns home with her two male lovers in tow, to look after her dying mother.

Award winner at the Berlin Film Festival and L.A. Outfest, Wild Side tells the story of Stéphanie, a transsexual prostitute, called back to her past life by her dying mother in deep rural France. She is joined by her makeshift family of lovers, Russian clandestine night-worker Mikhail and childlike hustler Jamel and once there begins to unravel some of the childhood events that have made her the person she is today. The frayed threads of this trio’s lives are spun into a non-linear tapestry that assesses their fractured senses of family, nationality, sexuality and gender.

Directed by Sébastien Lifshitz, whose photography collection comprises the current exhibition Under Cover: A Secret History Of Cross – Dressers. Following the screening, Lifshitz is joined in conversation by journalist and writer Juliet Jacques.
