A candle lighting activity will be held before the screening to remember Laude and to support the campaign against the extreme violence and discrimination that transwomen face around the globe. A symbolic blank tarp will be hung in front of the doors of the theater for the audience to show their solidarity by signing their names in calling for the immediate and final resolution of the Supreme Court for Laude’s case. A document translation of this act will be submitted to the Supreme Court.

After the screening, Virgie Suarez, Laude family lawyer; Naomi Fontanos, LGBT advocate; Kara Magsanoc-Alikpala, producer, CALL HER GANDA; and Malou Laude, Jennifer’s sister; will be present for a panel discussion.

Tickets cost P150. Part of the proceeds of the ticket sales will be donated to the legal fund of the Jennifer Laude case and campaign

Synopsis of the film: When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina transwoman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case–an activist attorney (Virgie Suarez), a transgender journalist (Meredith Talusan), and Jennifer’s mother (Julita “Nanay” Laude)–galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of U.S. imperialism.
