Call Her Ganda

Call Her Ganda

When 26-year old Filipina transgender woman and alleged sex worker, Jennifer Laude, is found dead, the perpetrator is quickly identified as 19-year-old U.S. marine Joseph Scott Pemberton, who was on “liberty leave” and would have solicited Jennifer at a disco. Fusing personal tragedy, human rights activism and the little-known history, and complex aftermath, of U.S. imperial rule in the Philippines, the film forges a visually daring and profoundly humanistic geopolitical investigative exposé.
