Bambi is the story of Marie-Pierre Pruvot, born Jean-Pierre in a small village in the former French colony of Algeria. She struggled in her early life as a boy but found a way out of her colonial life when a Parisian cabaret show came to town. Encouraged and enchanted, she moved to Paris, assumed the stage name of ‘Bambi’ and began her life as a female cabaret star.

GAZE veteran Sébastien Lifshitz lovingly tells her story using long interviews with the charismatic performer, stunning scenes of her return to Algeria and captivating old Super-8 footage from Marie-Pierre’s own collection.

Having overcome a difficult childhood and a tough gender transition, when surgery and hormonal treatments were still in their infancies, ‘Bambi’ is now a radiant woman in her late seventies and one of the most charismatic and engaging people you will ever seen on screen.

Winner, Teddy Award for Best Documentary, Berlinale 2013
