Film screening and discussion: Tangerine (dir.: S Baker; US, 2015)
Wed 26 October 2016, 18:00 – 20:30 BST
To mark Black History Month, UCL Americas Research Network is collaborating with UCL's LGBTQ Research Network, qUCL, to host a screening of Tangerine followed by a discussion around themes of intersectionality raised in the film. 'It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone) hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the transgender sex worker and her best friend, Alexandra (Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the
bottom of the scandalous rumour. Their riproaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles.'
This is a free screening but space is very limited and registration is strictly required.
IMPORTANT NOTE on access to 51 Gordon Square: in order to secure the smooth delivery of the lectures or presentations, and for ease of logistics, access may be restricted after the start of the event. We will endeavour to accommodate late arrivals within our possibilities, but an early arrival is recommended to avoid disappointment.
