Key data


Screening in cooperation with FILMFEST MÜNCHEN and as part of URANIANS, a film and video program curated by A.L. Steiner.



France 2023 | Director: Paul B. Preciado | 98 min | Original version with English subtitles


A defiant, intimate, poetic, thoroughly queer film about a struggle for recognition and visibility within a heteronormative system.


In “Orlando” (1928), Virginia Woolf tells the story of a young man who becomes a woman. Nearly 100 years after the publication of this novel, which is now considered a pivotal work of queer literature, philosopher and trans activist Paul B. Preciado has created a love letter to Woolf, proclaiming to her: “Your character has come to life! The world is now full of Orlandos!” Preciado has 25 trans and non-binary people slip into the role of Orlando and tell their personal stories.


Note: The film may contain explicit sexual depictions.
