ACLU Presents Tangerine

House of Wax

April 25, 7:00p.m. - 9:00p.m.

An ACLU documentary short will precede TANGERINE, followed by a discussion (panelists TBA). A breakout hit at Sundance in 2015, director Sean Baker and co-writer Chris Bergoch met their two transgender leads near the Donut Time in the LA neighborhood where TANGERINE is set and collaborated with them and other transgender sex workers to create the movie’s richly detailed, trash-talking characters and for its technical innovation; the film was shot entirely on several iPhone 5S cameras (with a prototype adapter lens). About the short: An intimate portrait of Kimberly and Kai Shappley: a mother rejecting her community’s beliefs as her transgender daughter navigates life at school, where she’s been banned from the girls’ bathroom. Director Daresha Kyi (Chavela), currently a Firelight Media Documentary Lab fellow, writes and directs film and television in Spanish and English, and has produced television for FX, WE, AMC, Telemundo, and others. Produced by the ACLU and Little by Little Films. This short is one of a series of three character-led films about transgender civil rights directed by LGBTQ+ filmmakers, produced by an inclusive and majority-LGBTQ+ production teams, and informed by a panel of transgender advisors. The ACLU champions transgender people’s right to be themselves.

Y Tu Mama Tambien Chef Dinner

House of Wax

May 2, 6:30p.m. - 9:00p.m.

We are thrilled to present the film with a Mexican-inspired menu created by our executive chef Ronnie New, with drink pairings from beverage director Vincent Favella. An early film by director Alfonso Cuarón (GRAVITY, CHILDREN OF MEN) starring Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna, Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN is the story of Julio and Tenoch, seventeen year olds who have had a long friendship despite their different backgrounds. Bidding farewell to their traveling girlfriends, the sex-obsessed duo are thrilled when they meet the older Luisa. Facing a crucial moment in her life, Luisa is game to drop everything and drive with the boys in search of Boca del Cielo, a remote beach of their invention. The ensuing road trip is filled with drunkenness, chance encounters and bad sex. A smash-hit when it was released in 2002, Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN has been somewhat overshadowed by the later successes of Cuarón, García Bernal and Luna, but remains one of the best films in each of their careers. MENU Course 1 Crab Ceviche blood orange, avocado, tostada Paired with: Frozen Prickly Pear Margarita Course 2 Quesadilla con Chicharron pork belly, blue corn, queso Oaxaca Paired with: Vago Mezcal Elote + smoked Sangrita Course 3 Red and Green Snapper fresh tortilla, lime Paired with: Tecate, Lager, Mexico, 4.5% Course 4 Churro chocolate-espresso sauce Paired with: The Drink of the Gods (Horchata with Rum)
