Vito Project screening of Tangerine Weds 22nd February @ 7pm
The VITO Project is delighted to present Tangerine, a 2015 American film directed by Sean S. Baker and written by Baker and Chris Bergoch, starring Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, and James Ransone.

One of 2015′s great indie hits, Tangerine is the fizzing, popping tale of two transgender working girls on Santa Monica Boulevard set over the course of one Christmas Eve. Just returned from a brief stint in jail, Sin-Dee Rella meets her best friend Alexandra and discovers that Chester, her beau, has been cheating on her with a ‘white fish’ (a Caucasian female-born woman). Determined to teach her a lesson, Sin-Dee goes on a hunt for Chester’s new girl. The film was mainly shot using three iPhone 5s smartphones.

The screening will be followed by an open discussion, guests to be announced at a later date.

This is a free event but we need your donations on the night to ensure the continuation of the VITO project. Donations are VITO’s only source of funding and we need to raise an average of £5 per person
