A family saga based on private archive footage, MADAME takes us onto an intimate journey where a flamboyant 90-year-old grandmother and her filmmaker grandson explore the development and transmission of gender identity in a patriarchal environment.
This includes the live Q&A with director Stephane Riethauser and special guest host Wendy Mitchell talking through Stephane's inspirations and why he decided to make Madame.
""A little miracle. A movie that keeps opening up to the world, that welcomes everyone in his lap.""

""Very beautiful, both poetic and disturbing, funny and revolting. A moving documentary.""
""A self-portrait without concession, of brutal honesty. An anthem to the conquest of freedom.""
