On 13 April the screening of Tangerine will be followed by a panel discussion in partnership with oestrogeneration, a magazine platform highlighting the voices of trans women and transfeminine people in the UK.
Sean Baker’s (The Florida Project) critically acclaimed Sundance smash hit Tangerine charts a Christmas Eve in the life of Sin-Dee and her best friend Alexandra, two trans women.
After hearing that Sin-Dee’s boyfriend/pimp cheated on her while she was in jail they set out on a rampage through Tinseltown to find him and teach him and his new lover a lesson. Famously shot on iPhones with prototype anamorphic lenses, this decidedly modern holiday tale bursts off the screen with energy and style, defying expectations at every turn.
Our post-screening panellists on 13 April will be Jaye Hudson and Bambi Jordan Phillips, and the discussion will be chaired by June Bellebono.
June Bellebono is a London-based writer, cultural producer and facilitator. They are the founder of oestrogeneration, a magazine platform highlighting transfeminine voices in the UK, and of Queer Good Grief, a peer support group by and for bereaved LGBTQ+ people.
