MNFF is so pleased to welcome back the great Barbara Kopple in the Returning Honoree Spotlight to present her most recent film, the moving documentary “This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous.” Set to screen at Town Hall Theater on Saturday, August 26 at 130p, the film centers on Gigi Gorgeous, a YouTube star born as Gregory Allan Lazzarato, who underwent a gender transition in 2013. The film premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
“I am so thrilled to be returning to the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival!” said Kopple. “Middlebury is such a beautiful place, and everyone here is so interesting and smart and the Festival always hosts wonderful films. Gigi is a remarkable person and continues to inspire those in the LGBTQ community. The love between her and her family is so pure and it is an honor to share their story with you all. “
