One of the best films at Sundance this year was shot with an iPhone 5S! Tangerine is the story of two women on on a rip-roaring odyssey that leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles on Christmas Eve. The women in this case are transgender. Tangerine bursts off the screen with energy, wit and style.

Filmmaker Sean Baker is the co-creator of Greg The Bunny, the cult IFC show which spoofed Annie Hall, Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, Fargo, Blue Velvet, Easy Rider and Pulp Fiction. Some of you saw his debut film, Starlet, at Ryder last year. In Tangerine, he cast real transgender women that he met at an LGBT drop-in center as the leads. Kiki Kitana Rodriguez and Mya Taylor star. James Ransome (from The Wire) co-stars.

Tangerine is funded in part by the IU GLBT Student Support Services

WATCH THE TRAILER

 

“Little is as it seems in Tangerine, a fast, raucously funny comedy about love and other misadventures. Tangerine encompasses dizzying multitudes — it’s a neo-screwball chase flick with a dash of Rainer Werner Fassbinder — but mostly, movingly, it is a female-friendship movie about two people who each started life with an XY chromosome set. ” –The New York Times

 

IT JUMPS OFF THE SCREEN AND WOWS YOU LIKE NOBODY’S BUSINESS! A groundbreaking film that leaves you in stitches while quietly breaking your heart. –Rolling Stone

 

What’s extraordinary about Tangerine is that it’s everything an entertaining, old-fashioned, mainstream Hollywood comedy should be but no longer is. –Vulture
