The Hollywood Reporter
The 2018 documentary, currently long-listed for an Academy Award®, focuses on the life and death of Jennifer Laude, a Filipina trans woman known as Ganda ("beauty" in Tagalog). When she 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.
