Film: "Call Her Ganda" 7:15 at Topanga Library

The Topanga Peace Alliance 163rd Consecutive First Friday Film Night

"Call Her Ganda"

Friday, November 2nd, at the Topanga Library

Snack Pot Luck at 7:15, Movie 7:30.

Discussion with filmmaker after the film

"Call Her Ganda" is a moving new documentary with stunning cinematography that follows the story of Jennifer Laude, a Filipina Trans-woman who was brutally murdered by a U.S Marine in her hometown of Olongapo, in 2014. On the surface, this is a story of a mother fighting for justice, but as you continue to watch the cascading response from the legal system, and fellow Filipinos, unfold, Director, PJ Raval, reveals the saddening truth about a country's fight to overcome transphobia and a long-harbored imperialist rule from the United States.

"Call Her Ganda" powerfully describes the impact of American colonialism and transphobia through the story of Jenifer Laude and the three women, (her mother, a transgender journalist, and an attorney) determined to seek justice for Jennifer. "Call Her Ganda" sheds light on a horrifically ugly incident with extraordinary cinematic artistry. Balancing the personal with the political, this film goes beyond a lurid hate crime to reveal how one country's imperialistic attitude towards another compounded with transphobia can lead to irresponsible, disrespectful and lethal behavior. At a time when the Trump administration is trying to restrict the civil rights of LGBT+ individuals and is building up nearly 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad, "Call Her Ganda" is a powerful and artistic film for today.

After the film we will have a presentation and discussion led by a producer of the film, Set Hernandez Rongkilyo and Topanga's own Kathleen Hernandez representing Veterans for Peace.

Before the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice.
