SEAHORSE + Q&A

Dir: Jeanie Finlay
United Kingdom / 2019 / 90mins

Freddy is 30 and yearns to start a family, but this poses unique challenges. He is a gay transgender man. Seahorse tells the story of his journey.

Deciding to carry his own baby took years of soul searching, but he was unprepared for the reality of pregnancy, both physically and challenging society's fundamental understanding of gender & family. 

To him what feels pragmatic, to others feels confronting; this wasn't part of his plan. Against a backdrop of hostility towards trans people, he is forced to confront his naivety.

Made with unprecedented access & collaboration, Seahorse is an audacious & lyrical story about what makes us who we are.

A Grain Media Production for BBC TWO In association with Glimmer Films and The Guardian.

The screening on Wed 28th Aug will be followed by a director Q&A.
