Out Run

New York Premiere

Presented in Partnership with Workers Unite! Film Festival

Dir: S. Leo Chiang, Johnny Symons, USA/Philippines, 2016, 75 mins, in English and Tagalog with English subtitles

Facing the harsh, transphobic climate of the Philippines, three transgender hairdressers and beauty queens attempt to make history by running for office as candidates of the Ladlad party—the world’s first LGBT political party. The political hopefuls take to the streets of the Philippines and make themselves exceedingly visible as directors S. Leo Chiang and Johnny Symons immerse the audience in the battle for rights and acceptance. This rousing documentary reaches beyond just personal narratives, following the historic struggle of the Ladlad party in its attempt to bring its voters out of the shadows to fight for representation.
