Tangerine, directed by Sean Baker in 2015, is famous partly for the fact it was shot completely on the iPhone 5. The film is also infamous for its zany comedy, touching moments of vulnerability, and complex portrayal of life spent working the street as it follows two transgender sex workers and their colleagues, lovers, and clients.

Discussion will focus on analyzing the relationships between gender and sexuality, love and friendship, body and performance. We will also address the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, and class as well as the different ways that film has represented sexuality across cultures, schools of cinema, film technologies, and history.

These screenings are part of the DLCL Film Series DLCL 152A/354A, which undergraduates and undergraduates can take for one unit C/NC. All screenings are free and open to the public and audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussions following the films. Please be aware that some films may include graphic or disturbing content: viewers are therefore advised to familiarize themselves with the films' content before viewing. May be repeated for credit.
