A young man gets pregnant in a village by the English Channel in this life-affirming and nuanced documentary.

”Everybody should be allowed to experience pregnancy, especially men,” says Freddy’s mother. Freddy is a trans man who has decided to conceive. We follow the charming and articulate Freddy, who lives in a small village, through the demanding process – from breaking up with his boyfriend to physical changes. In an optimistic, gentle tone, his very real challenges and moments of joy are interspersed with scenes featuring seahorses (the male seahorses carry the babies). Seahorse is a tender, lovely film about the distinction between identity and biology, about hormones and preconceptions. A though-provoking and powerful reflection on fatherhood and about what the terms male and female actually mean.

Director: Jeanie Finlay

Finlay is one of Britain’s most distinctive documentary makers. Her acclaimed films tell small and intimate stories to international audiences, whether into the life of a British trans man, pregnant with his child or into the tears and triumphs on the set of the world’s biggest television show for HBO on the Emmy-nominated Game of Thrones: The Last Watch. Her films, although varied in subject matter, share an empathetic approach to bringing overlooked and untold stories to the screen. Seahorse is her eighth feature film.
