All are welcome to participate in this documentary screening and conversation exploring gender and justice, gender-based violence, and the experiences of transgender people in the context of U.S. militarism and imperialism in the Philippines.

This film will have live commentary followed by a short post-film discussion.


When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina trans woman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case—an activist attorney (Virgie Suarez), a transgender journalist (Meredith Talusan) and Jennifer’s mother (Julita “Nanay” Laude)—galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of U.S. imperialism.
