Tangerine jumps off the screen and wows you like nobody’s business. A visually innovative knockout that grabs you from the first frame.

Shot entirely on an iPhone 5s, this instant cult classic was a break-out hit at Sundance this year and will be making its way to Berlin after several international film festivals.
We’re incredibly excited to welcome the film’s acclaimed director, Sean Baker, to Berlin for a Q&A after the film (with thanks to our hotel sponsor, Hotel Zoo)
Join us from 19:00 for complimentary drinks and donuts courtesy of Jameson Whiskey and Dunkin’ Donuts.
ABOUT THE FILM
When transgender working girl Sin-Dee hears that her pimp boyfriend has been cheating, she drags best friend Alexandra on a wild pimp chase from donut shops to drug dens down Santa Monica Boulevard.
Featuring dazzling, inventive cinematography, this neon-lit romp from writer, director, and editor Sean Baker is high energy, high contrast, and equal parts snark and heart.
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR
Sean Baker shot his first feature ‘Four Letter Words’ in 1996 and finally finished it in 2000. Made for $80,000 with 35mm short ends, it’s the only movie he has done on film. In 2004, he shot ‘Take Out’ on standard definition video for $3,000 and “finished it with favors.” In 2008, he made ‘Prince of Broadway’ for $45,000. Then in 2012, he completed ‘Starlet,’ which was filmed in HD on a $235,000 budget. ‘Starlet’ received enthusiastic reviews, won the Robert Altman Award at the Independent Spirit Awards and was distributed by Music Box Films.
