2017 • 76 Minutes
Since Disney’s The Little Mermaid came out, we have been obsessed with these aquatic creatures. In her first documentary, Ali Weinstein –daughter of Larry Weinstein– brings us closer to real-life mermaids around us. We follow the story of Cookie in Harlem, whose love for mermaids gets her closer to her husband Ralph, who lovingly creates her outfits by hand. We also meet Julz, transgender woman, who always wanted to be “one of the girls”, so “mermaiding” helps her break free from her bible-belt upbringing. All of the women featured follow a personal journey, where Mermaids reveal the healing power of imagination.
