Image from the film Mala Mala.
Lashes, wigs, and dresses: when applied by transgender women and drag queens, these artifacts defy gender binaries and serve as channels of individual expression. This film, which is told through the eyes of nine trans-identifying individuals and drag queens in Puerto Rico, celebrates a lifestyle of possibility and endless creation afforded to those willing to break conventions to find fulfillment. The result is an intimate profile of a beautifully unique community whose members share deeply dualistic cultural and political identities. In Spanish and English languages with English subtitles. (HD Cam presentation)

April Carrion from the film is scheduled to be present.
