Carmin Tropical Dir. by Rigoberto Perezcano, 2014, Mexico, Spanish with English subtitles, 80min July 14 at 7:00pm at the Harmony Gold Successful trans nightclub singer Mabel returns to her hometown in Mexico to investigate the murder of her best friend Daniela. With no leads and little insight into Daniela’s death, Mabel digs deeper into her friend’s past, realizing how her own upbringing and past life overlap unnervingly with that of her murdered friend. In order to fully comprehend what happened to Daniela, Mabel must embrace a world she desperately tried to leave behind. Directed with a potent mixture of nostalgia and dread, CARMIN TROPICAL carefully unveils a fascinating and increasingly sinister mystery that questions whether or not we can escape our own fate.

    Un trabajo extraordinario de Rigoberto que me emocionó muchísimo. Estaba yo como jurado en el festival El Lugar Sin Limites, en Ecuador y Carmín Tropical me transportó a un mundo que desgraciadamente es muy real y es la violencia existente y estúpida en contra de nuestras hermanas transgénero , la película logra capturar esa dualidad casi efímera de la belleza y el terror en fun, tienen que verka con el corazón porque es un trabajo exquisitamente especial.
