It’s Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend hasn’t been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, this working girl and her best friend Alexandra, embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumour.
Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity.
A hot favourite at the Sundance Film Festival, Tangerine received great admiration for being made for just $100,000 and shot on the iPhone 5. A truly DIY project, director Sean Baker found lead actors Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriguez by hanging out at Donut Time (which features in the film), he also used their real-life stories to shape the script. Other actors were sourced through Vine and Instagram.
Tangerine is a non-stop, vibrant and fierce trip into the LA street scene, that also explores a rarely seen on film Trans street culture with great empathy.
