Shot—beautifully and entirely—on iPhones, this mind-blowing, gender-bending knockout is one of the year’s must-see films (and it was recently announced that the film’s distributor is mounting the first-ever Oscar campaign for transgender performers on behalf of the two lead actresses).

It’s Christmas Eve in Los Angeles, as a pair of motor-mouthed transgender women pinball across the city in search of their two-timing pimp. Newcomers Rodriguez and Taylor are screamingly funny as Alexandra and Sin-Dee, two larger (and louder)-than-life personalities that you’ve never encountered onscreen before. Gleefully profane, incandescently heartfelt, and positively bursting off the screen with energetic swagger, Tangerine is like nothing else in cinema. Director Sean Baker (Starlet, Prince of Broadway) will join us in person to talk about the making of his groundbreaking feature after the screening.

The UW Cinematheque will be presenting this amazing film this Saturday, October 24.
