Tangerine (w/ Sean Baker, Chris Bergoch, and James Ransone in person!)

w/ director Sean Baker, writer Chris Bergoch, and actor James Ransone in person!

The nativity story tells us that prior to the birth of Jesus Christ, the Three Wise Men followed the Star of Bethlehem through the night bearing gifts for their future savior. Their strenuous trek to Bethlehem fulfilled the prophecy and led them to baby Jesus. Fast forward to the same night, in Hollywood, 2014 years later. It’s Christmas Eve and trans sex worker Sin-Dee Rella, recently released from jail, is intent on bringing some Santa Monica Boulevard justice to the “white fish” who has stolen her man (James Ransome). This dizzying, luminous, LA-on-foot film is the contemporary Christmas offering you didn’t know you needed, with all the warmth and redemption of classic holiday fare – and miraculously shot on nothing but three tricked out iPhones. Follow the star in the tangerine sky to Cinefamily for this quintessentially LA holiday screening.

Dir. Sean Baker, 2015, DCP, 88 min.
