Gender Reel 8th Annual Twin Cities Film Festival kicks off its Opening Night with a premiere screening of “Señorita,” followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker Isabel Sandoval.
The evening kicks off with a screening of the short film “She,” followed by a premiere screening of “Señorita” including a Q&A with filmmaker Isabel Sandoval, who will also show segments of her newest film “Lingua Franca.” Isabel, who also stars in “Señorita,” will talk candidly about her films and answer questions from the audience.
“Señorita” explores the life of Donna, a transgender sex worker from Manila who retreats to a quieter existence in a small town where she hopes to raise her 12-year-old foster son Tomas and work on the campaign of a local mayoral candidate. After relocating, Donna discovers things are not what they appear, spurring her to make provocative moves on the campaign trail and in her personal life. (99 min feature film)
