La Belle de Gaza by Yolande Zauberman, a documentary about Palestinian transsexuals fleeing Gaza for Tel Aviv. A special screening at the Cannes Film Festival, the film is due in cinemas on May 29, 2024.

The Cannes Film Festival offers a platform for committed documentary films that explore little-known realities. Yolande Zauberman's La Belle de Gaza, presented in a special screening, promises a poignant look at a marginalized community at the heart of a complex conflict.

La Belle de Gaza follows the journey of Palestinian transsexuals who flee Gaza for Tel Aviv to freely live out their new identities. The film captures their perilous journey on foot between these two worlds, offering a rare insight into their struggle for self-affirmation in a context of conflict and oppression.

Renowned documentary filmmakerYolande Zauberman brings her unique sensibility to this delicate subject. Her previous films have often explored themes of identity, marginalization and human resilience in the face of adversity, setting the stage for this poignant new exploration.

Thierry Frémaux said:"Yolande Zauberman, the documentary filmmaker you know, has made a film called La Belle de Gaza. It tells the story of Palestinian transsexuals from Gaza who cross over to the other side and go to Tel Aviv to live out their new identity. Needless to say, this film was shot and written before the war, but it has a very special resonance as we continue to explore this painful territory on our planet.
