Post-film discussion with Victoria Reyes, Assistant Professor, Department of Gender & Sexuality Studies, University of California, Riverside and Judith Mirkinson, President of the “Comfort Women” Justice Coalition and Cofounder, Gabriela Network

When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina trans woman, 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.

What is Utah Film Center’s Community Spotlight program? Utah Film Center is sharing its online streaming platform to allow community groups to elevate their mission and message through film. We think of it as a virtual venue rental where nonprofits can “gather” to watch a film and dive deep into meaningful discussions. We are glad to offer a creative way to help nonprofits build and rally their community no matter where people are. Learn more by visiting: utahfilmcenter.org/community-spotlight.
