Set in a time long ago, ORLANDOS tells the story of a woman breaking free from her restricted life to meet her forbidden lover, a trans man, who shows her the world of seduction, freedom and lust. Inspired by Orlando: A Biography, the pioneering 1928 queer novel by Virginia Woolf based on the life of her lover Vita Sackville-West and the first English language transgender fiction, this movie is a love letter to all of the Orlandos out there who are living and loving outside of gender restrictions.
Featuring Sulema Vasquez & Kay Garnellien
