An innovative hybrid narrative-documentary about trans Latina sex workers in Queens, NY
A trans Latina sex worker is arrested in a sting operation in Queens, NY, but this time it’s all a staged recreation, and when “Cut!” is shouted off-camera, the actors relax before the next take. Merging fiction and documentary, Nicola Mai’s innovative hybrid feature explores the epidemics of U.S. incarceration and deportation, making room for the women at the center of the violence to tell their own stories.
