Brudenell Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS6 1JD

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 and 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 and collaboration between Freddy and acclaimed filmmaker Jeanie Finlay (Game of Thrones: The Last Watch), Seahorse is an audacious and lyrical story about what makes us who we are.

For this special Reclaim the Frame screening, the film's director Jeanie Finlay will be joining us for a live Q&A, alongside Birds' Eye View founder, Mia Bays.

Reclaim The Frame is a Birds’ Eye View project, backed by the BFI, bringing ever-greater audiences to films both written and directed by women.

A Tuesday Wonder screening, shining a light on those hidden gems that you really shouldn't miss.

United Kingdom, 2019, 91mins, Cert.15
