Pineapple Lab, R Palma, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines
Pineapple Lab hosts a screening of the award-winning documentary, PJ Raval's "Call Her Ganda".
When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina transwoman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case--an activist attorney (Virgie Suarez), a transgender journalist (Meredith Talusan) and Jennifer’s mother (Julita "Nanay" Laude) --galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of U.S. imperialism.
A modern David and Goliath story, CALL HER GANDA fuses personal tragedy, human rights activism and the little-known history, and complex aftermath, of U.S. imperial rule in the Philippines, forging a visually daring and profoundly humanistic geopolitical investigative exposé.
Screening to be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker and director of the film PJ Raval and with lawyer and Laude family legal counsel Atty. Virginia Suarez.
