Call Her Ganda
July 14 | Harmony Gold | 11:30am
Tickets: Link in bio

A journalist, a lawyer working pro bono, and the mother of the victim unite to stand up to U.S. imperialism and demand justice in the name of Jennifer Laude, a 26-year-old trans woman murdered by a U.S. Marine in the Philippines. In the face of the gruesome facts of the case and transphobic reactions worldwide, these three women do not waiver, knowing that what is at stake is Filipino sovereignty and an end to gender-based violence. This is a visually daring and profoundly humanistic geopolitical exposé. #outfest #outfestla #losangeles #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtfilm #lgbtqfilm #queercinema #queerfilm #filmfestival #filmfest #film #queer 🌈 #philippines #marine #trans #filipino #journalist #lawyer #callherganda

Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood
July 14 | Directors Guild of America | 1:45pm
Tickets: Link in bio

In Hollywood’s Golden Age, studio publicists presented movie stars as paragons of heterosexual domesticity, but behind the curtain, some beloved actors and actresses had very different proclivities. Many of these celebrity sexcapades first came to light in Scotty Bowers’ controversial book Full Service. This fascinating documentary balances juicy gossip (bolstered by expert witnesses like Gore Vidal and Liz Smith) with a compassionate look at Bowers’ life. Meet the man who pierces the veil and shines a light on the private sexual dalliances of some of cinema’s biggest stars.

Daddy Issues
July 14 | Directors Guild of America | 4:30pm
Tickets: Link in bio

An intoxicating invitation into the lives of two young women, one a fearless charmer, the other a talented but shy artist. When the pair meets, their lips and their lives collide, and the chemistry is electric. Combining their skills to design a clothing line, the girls spend every waking moment together, until the unthinkable happens. This candy-colored glimpse into first love is not only gorgeously shot, but it’s also driven by slick editing and an empowering soundtrack, immersing the viewer — or voyeur — into a world laced with potent sexuality.

Bitter Melon
July 13 | Harmony Gold | 7pm
Tickets: Link in bio

Who knew that the insensitive way some of his Filipino-American family members treat his sexuality would be the least of Declan’s worries when he returns home for the holidays? As he and his siblings tiptoe around his freeloading brother’s volatile personality, long-buried secrets are revealed to set in motion a hilarious plan of revenge. A black comedy with heart, the latest from H.P. Mendoza (Fruit Fly) deftly explores toxic masculinity and abuse— emotional and physical—with absurdity and true empathy.

Bonding
July 13 | Harmony Gold | 9:45pm
Tickets: Link in bio

Long-lost high school BFFs, Pete (Brendan Scannell), a recently out gay man, and Tiff (Zoe Levin), a grad student, hope to pick up right where they left off. But Tiff has a secret: she’s one of NYC’s top dominatrixes, and she’s about to tie Pete up in her underground world of sexual secrecy and BDSM. The dramedy series is loosely based on the life experiences of Rightor Doyle (HBO’s “Barry,” FX’s “You’re the Worst”), who wrote, directed, and executive produced the series.

Each of these exceptional stories expand our limited definition of gender and breathe authenticity back onto the screen with every frame. From beating back fears of discrimination to expressing yourself through experimental dance, demonstrating bravery in the face of unwelcoming family members or blazing trails for fellow young students, the extraordinary individuals at the heart of these stories showcase a proud love of truth over fear.

All About My Mother #OutfestLA

Tickets: Link in bio

From Mommie Dearest to mom of the year, there will always be myriad ways to define motherhood in the movies. And whether you are one, have one, or know one, we all have our own unique experiences around how these ladies fit into our lives. Between mama bears a bit too woke for their own good to those sleeping on their children’s talents, new mothers facing discrimination or those struggling to understand their queer children, these films capture maternity in motion.

Adrian (@CoryMichaelSmith, “Gotham”, Carol) returns to Texas for Christmas, keeping quiet about both his sexuality and HIV status. Award-winning writer-director @yentanpics (Pit Stop, Ciao) delivers a poignant period piece about a gay man tying up loose ends with his parents (Virginia Madsen and Michael Chiklis) and friends (including Jamie Chung as Adrian’s ex from high school) and leaving a legacy of hope for his younger brother (Aidan Langford, Bosch), who may be following in Adrian’s footsteps.
