Reel Queer Film Series

Tangerine (2015)

Directed by Sean Baker, starring Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor & Karren Karagulian, USA 2015, 88 Minutes

Admission: $5 Suggested Donation, Free for Squeaky Members

Hosted at: Dreamland Art Studio, 387 Franklin St. Buffalo, NY 14202

It’s Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone, STARLET, “Generation Kill”) hasn’t been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. Director Sean Baker’s prior films (STARLET, PRINCE OF BROADWAY) brought rich texture and intimate detail to worlds seldom seen on film. TANGERINE follows suit, bursting off the screen with energy and style. A decidedly modern Christmas tale told on the streets of L.A., TANGERINE defies expectation at every turn. -Magnolia Pictures

About Reel Queer Film Series:

REEL Queer is more than just a film series…it’s a community! Since establishment in 2013, REEL Queer has promoted works produced by LGBTQ filmmakers and/or highlight issues relevant to the LQBTQ community. The series has recently undergone a change in venue, from Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center to the freshly 501c3 inaugurated Dreamland Studio & Gallery at 587 Franklin Street, Buffalo, NY. The series is co-sponsored by Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center with support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Dreamland is a safe space for Queers, Women, and Trans*folk. Dreamland’s mission is to provide a cultural alternative for artists and patrons of the Arts in the Greater Buffalo area that nourishes avant-garde philosophies in various artistic mediums. Using models of various cooperatives (co-op housing, “D.I.Y” and punk spaces, art collectives); Dreamland strives to be an inclusive safe space, that is both accessible and comfortable to minorities (sexual, gender-based, racial, physical) and those of disadvantageous economic abilities.
