Mala Mala delves into the world of the trans community in Puerto Rico, told through the eyes of nine trans-identifying individuals. The award-winning documentary presents a unique exploration of self-discovery and activism, featuring a diverse collection of subjects that include LGBTQ advocates, business owners, sex workers, and a boisterous group of drag performers including RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant April Carrión.
Through gorgeous cinematography that encapsulates the candy-colored, vivacious personalities as well as their frequently dark personal experiences, directors Antonio Santini and Dan Sickles dynamically present the passion and hardships reflective of this distinctively binary world. Mala Mala portrays the road to personal and community acceptance paved with triumphant highs and devastating lows. (Dir. by Antonio Santini & Dan Sickles, 2014, Puerto Rico/USA, in Spanish/English with English subtitles, 87 mins., Not Rated)”
