LITTLE GIRL is a French documentary concerning a child who is diagnosed with gender dysphoria.

Theme

The theme of gender dysphoria is handled sensitively and responsibly, and reported incidents of discrimination and transphobia are clearly disapproved of. The film contains a scene in which a woman refers to a miscarriage; however, the references are brief and undetailed.

Discrimination

In one scene, Sasha and her mother visit a child psychiatrist and during her consultation Sasha becomes visibly distressed and cries, explaining that she is upset because some girls at her school do not seem to accept her gender identity. In another scene with the child psychiatrist, Sasha's mother explains how angry she felt after Sasha's female ballet teacher showed transphobic behaviour by refusing to allow her to attend a ballet class whilst wearing female clothes. Sasha's mother also states that she found Sasha crying in despair after this incident. There is also a scene in which Sasha's mother speculates that Sasha will encounter insults, threats and the risk of beatings as she grows up.

There are also scenes in which adults smoke cigarettes.
