THFF’18: Bixa Travesty (Tranny Fag)


O Cinema Wynwood Sat, Sep 29, 2018 8:30 PM


Third Horizon Film Festival presents the Florida premiere of Bixa Travesty (Tranny Fag).


Welcome to the world of Linn da Quebrada! A black trans woman from São Paulo, Linn is also a pop performer who raises her voice for queers of color from the favelas. Accompanied by her childhood friend Jup do Bairro, her mesmerizing concerts are onslaughts of electro against Brazil’s white heteronormative gender order and its machismo. Private moments reveal her gentler side, while home videos show her in hospital during cancer treatment. Using radical nudity as a means to undermine accepted gender roles, Linn also espouses her convictions about feminism and transsexuality: not for her the role of a cis woman; she’d rather be a woman with a penis whose gender identity is in a permanent state of flux.
