CALL HER GANDA: FILM SCREENING



EVENT DATE
Thursday, August 22, 2019
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

LOCATION
Center on Halsted


DESCRIPTION

When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina transwoman, 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.

A modern David and Goliath story, CALL HER GANDA fuses personal tragedy, human rights activism and the little-known history, and complex aftermath, of U.S. imperial rule in the Philippines, forging a visually daring and profoundly humanistic geopolitical investigative exposé.
