TANGERINE - Camberwell Free Film Festival Screening

Tangerine (Dir: Sean Baker, 2015, US, Cert: 15, 88 min) 
On Christmas Eve, trans gender woman sex worker Sin-Dee Rella, who has just finished a twenty-eight day prison sentence, meats her best friend Alexandra, also a trans sex worker at Donut Time in Hollywood. Alexandra informs Sin-Dee that her boyfriend and pimp Chester has been cheating on her with a white woman, Dinah. Outraged, Sin-Dee storms out of the diner to search the neighbourhood for Chester and Dinah and the “Fish” he has been sleeping with. As Sin-Dee searches and Alexandra prepares for her stage show in West Hollywood, Razmik, an Armenian cab driver, drives clients around Los Angeles to raise money for the girls’ company under the nose of his suspecting family. Shot largely on an iPhone 5s with a $7.99 app and a miniscule budget - this is an extraordinary non-judgemental film that is everything an entertaining, old-fashioned, mainstream Hollywood comedy should and used to be but no longer is.
