Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., presents this screening in person and via Zoom. Free. In collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (pbs.org/pov).

In the small Mexican coastal village of El Roblito, 16-year-old Ñoño lives what seems to be an idyllic existence with his loving family. But he holds a secret. Defying gender norms, Ñoño works up the courage to tell his family he wants to live his life as a woman. Yet when violence interrupts a community celebration, he must face the reality of a country shrouded in machismo and transphobia.

Limited seating in the community room. For links to attend via Zoom, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov by 4 p.m. on Jan. 20 and identify the event you are interested in attending in the subject line.
