Reclaim the Frame – Seahorse: The Dad Who Gave Birth (15)

F Rated Film
Monday 4th November 2019

Join Birds' Eye View for a post screening discussion with academic Katie Mcbride from the University of Plymouth hosted by Oscar-winning producer and Birds' Eye View director-at-large and Mia Bays.

Freddy is 30 and yearns to start a family but this poses unique challenges. He is a gay transgender man. 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 was not 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 a lyrical story about what makes us who we are.

This screening is hosted in collaboration with The European Social Research Council's annual Festival of Social Science.

Reclaim The Frame is a mission to bring ever-greater audiences to films by women to widen and enrich cinema’s perspective of the world, run by charity Birds’ Eye View, and backed by the British Film Institute’s Audience Fund.
