Comedy-drama Tangerine follows transgender sex worker Sin-Dee Rella (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) on Christmas Eve in an impassioned and eventful search for her cheating boyfriend and pimp. The film vibrantly illustrates the raw realities of the transgender women working the streets of Los Angeles, as well as the tenderness of their friendships. It was also, remarkably, shot entirely on three iPhone 5Ss.

Sean Baker’s rip-roaring, guerilla-shot trans hooker revenge farce puts flesh back on the bones of motley stereotypes from the streets of Los Angeles.

Blood on Earth comprises a series of films embracing work which explores the human condition through stories from the African and Caribbean diaspora. The films showcased will cover feminist, LGBTQ+, class, and postcolonial dialogues, and in doing so bring a broad range of perspectives to the screen on a monthly basis.
