Seahorse (Jeanie Finlay, 2019) 1hr 31m | 16/09/19 7pm @ CCA Glasgow

Queer Classics and Matchbox Cineclub are delighted to screen Jeanie Finlay's documentary, Seahorse, the story of a dad who gave birth, which follows Freddy McConnell's journey through the pregnancy and birth of his son.

We're delighted to welcome Jeanie Finlay, who will be joining us for a post-screening Q&A.

Seahorse is an intimate documentary following Freddy McConnell's journey as a pregnant trans man, from Jeanie Finlay (director of Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, Orion: The Man Who Would Be King and The Great Hip Hop Hoax).

After years of soul-searching, Freddy decides to carry his own child, but he faces both the difficulties of pregnancy and of challenging society's fundamental understanding of gender, parenthood and family. Made over three years, from preparing to conceive right through to birth, this documentary offers a touching and honest look at pregnancy, birth and what makes us who we are.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale, based on your circumstances. There are three tiers: Free/£2, £4/£6 and £8. (register for a free ticket via tickets@matchboxcineclub.com). Read our guide on what to pay here: bit.ly/slidingscaleguide, or in the event photos (to the left)
