Synopsis

Lasseindra Ninja, the main character of the film, is a professional transgenre dancer born in 1986. She’s a well-known artist in France’s voguing scene. After building her career through the balls of New York, France and Brazil, among many other main stages, she comes back to her home country to introduce voguing in French Guiana. By the means of her workshop, we catch a glance of its emergence and its impact on self-empowerment for a consolidating LGBTQ community. A glimpse of self-liberation and freedom of expression through the body.

The Director

After studying anthropology and a master’s degree in documentary filmmaking, Audrey Jean-Baptiste has been working for ten years as assistant director for television and cinema. In parallel, she directs self-produced films, trains herself in screenwriting and participates in several writing residencies. She made her first documentary, Fabulous, produced by Six Onze Films. She is currently preparing the film Les Cœurs battants produced by Les Films Grand Huit.
