Event description

Description

When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina trans woman, was killed by a US Marine. Her case created an outcry and galvanized activists locally and internationally. PJ Raval’s moving documentary follows three women intimately involved in Jennifer’s case; her mother, who is relentless in her pursuit of justice; American-Filipina trans journalist Meredith Talusan; and the family’s lawyer Virgie Suarez, who’s faced with the task of not only proving a murder case, but also taking on the Visiting Forces Agreement, which dictates that the US government retains jurisdiction over military personnel accused of crimes in the Philippines. It galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of US imperialism.

This riveting film shows the ways in which American imperialism and the violence against women like Jennifer are inextricably linked, and raises complex questions about sovereignty, justice, and the right to self-determination.

A short discussion will follow
