Our take

Taking copyrighted characters for a joyride, Vera Drew’s inventive take on the superhero film bounces between different visual styles, including dynamic animation and puppetry. Basking in the thrill of pastiche, this daring debut keenly expresses the trans experience through the lens of pop culture.
