* Except Arts Circle and Film Lover Members – see ‘Registration Information’ below.

Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Monica in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with director/writer/producer Andrea Pallaoro and actor Patricia Clarkson, moderated by John Benjamin Hickey (actor, The Big C) is included as part of this screening experience.

Monica is an intimate portrait of a transgender woman who returns home after a long absence to confront the wounds of her past. Reconnecting with her mother and the rest of her family for the first time since leaving as a teenager, Monica embarks on a path of healing and acceptance. The film delves into Monica’s internal world and state of mind; her pain and fears, and her needs and desires, to explore the universal themes of abandonment and forgiveness.
