Director: Sean Baker Run Time: 87 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 2015
Starring: James Ransone, Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor
Rather than being a possibly morbid, histrionic drama about trans sex workers, of which there are more than enough, TANGERINE is fresh, beaming, and delightful, achieving an impressive balance of sun-soaked beauty (shot on iPhones, no less) and an introspective searching quality that grants superstars Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriguez humanity and dimension, and refuses to relegate them to tragedy.
Double Feature with CHOCOLATE BABIES
