“I hope you will be brave enough to be yourself no matter what other people think.”
GABI: From 8 to 13 (71′) follows the remarkable Gabi over the course of five formative years as she wrestles with society’s stereotypes about boys and girls. When her family moves from Stockholm to a small rural town, and as puberty kicks in, Gabi must decide whether she wants to fit in with the crowd or chart her own path. A landmark portrait of early adolescence, GABI: From 8 to 13 is ultimately about the journey to be true to yourself. Directed by Engeli Broberg. Produced by Anna Ljungmark and House of Real. Supported by the Sundance Film Institute.
