A new generation challenges restrictive gender norms in these sensitive coming-of-age journeys. Goran Stolevski’s award-winning short WOULD YOU LOOK AT HER is a visceral immersion into the world of a teenage tomboy who defies conservative Macedonian gender expectations when she dares to take part in a religious ritual traditionally reserved for men. Céline Sciamma explores similar themes in her acclaimed feature TOMBOY, a tenderly observed portrait of a gender nonconforming child testing the waters of a new identity.
