TRANSIT HAVANA – A screening and fundraiser

TRANSIT HAVANA – A screening and fundraiser

Dir. Daniel Abma | 86 min | 2016 In Spanish with English subtitles Tickets: http://store.torontoqueerfilmfest.com/ Co-Presented with CaribbeanTales International Film Festival and Pleasure Dome ABOUT THE FILM In Havana, transsexuals Odette, Juani and Malú wait for years for surgical transitions performed by European surgeons and organized by the president’s daughter, Mariela Castro. Transit Havana follows their struggles with poverty and lack of access to trans health technologies due to the decades-long US embargo against Cuba. A stunning portrait of queer and trans liberation struggles in a socialist country, Transit Havana explores issues such as the Castro regime’s history of queer and trans phobia and violence, labor issues (from sex work to discrimination in offices), queer and trans rural living, and more. LOCATION & INFO March 2 at The Tranzac Club 292 Brunswick Ave, Toronto 7:00pm – doors 7:30pm – screening & discussion pwyc – $5- $25 sliding scale, no one turned away for lack of funds! Advance tickets available here: http://store.torontoqueerfilmfest.com/   ABOUT TQFF TQFF begins the 2017 season with this special screening of TRANSIT HAVANA, an event that will launch our crowdfunding campaign for our upcoming festival on June 14-17. As a new festival, we are wholly reliant on community support to make the festival happen as well as ensure its accessibility to all: from our pay-what-you-can/no one turned away for lack of funds ticket structure, to ensuring that all of our screenings have closed-captioning and ASL interpreters. In addition, TQFF will be co-hosting (with CaribbeanTales) a free DIY filmmaking workshop for queer and trans people of color in the coming months, and with your help we hope to expand on such educational offerings throughout the year. Please contact us or join our newsletter if you can commit to donating in the first 24 hours of the crowdfunding launch (this is crucial to the success of the campaign), or if you are willing to donate your time and/or expertise to help the campaign: info@torontoqueerfilmfest.com or http://torontoqueerfilmfest.com/newsletter/ To purchase advance tickets: http://store.torontoqueerfilmfest.com/ For more information, visit: http://torontoqueerfilmfest.com/2017-fundraiser/ Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1663794263919248/ TQFF Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TorontoQueerFilmFest/ TQFF email list signup: http://torontoqueerfilmfest.com/newsletter/
