Queerly Beloved: Tangerine
When transgender sex worker Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) learns that her pimp boyfriend has been cheating on her, she makes it her mission to track him down through the backstreets of LA on Christmas Eve–but best friend Alexandra (Mya Taylor) won’t let this mission interfere with her evening nightclub performance. Famously shot on an iPhone, director Sean Baker (The Florida Project) tells a rare story of the deep friendship between two marginalized women caring for one another in a world hostile to their existence. Filled with winning one-liners, artful excess and an inventive soundtrack, the film is a wild and addictive watch—fresh, colourful and bewitching from beginning to end.
