Sinopsis: Alex ha querido tener un bebé casi desde que tiene uso de razón. Pero, ¿cómo se supone que una lesbiana trans/butch obtenga esperma? Cuando considera preguntarle a Mateo, un amigo gay cercano suyo, Alex se ve obligada a investigar qué es lo que realmente valora.

Kenia (Mexico, 90 min. 2022. Feature Documentary)
Director: Gisela Delgadillo
Producer: Gisela Delgadillo
Genre:  LGBTQ, Human Right, Social Issues
Language: Spanish w/ English subtitles

Synopsis: Trans women face extreme violence in Mexico City, and sex workers are even more vulnerable. This raw and deeply affecting portrait of Kenya gives an insider's view of the impact that violence has on the community, and how complex life is for them. The film begins shortly after Kenya witnesses her friend Paola being murdered by a client.

The film follows Kenya closely. Will the family accept burying Paola as she was: a flamboyant trans woman? Kenya approaches Paola's loved ones with great respect and understanding, something she rarely experiences herself. When the murderer is released, she embarks on a lengthy battle for justice, backed up by her sisters.

Kenya offers the camera a disarming welcome. Despite the outward show of high heels, wigs, make-up, plastic surgery there's a distinct lack of vanity on display. She welcomes us into her inner world as well. She's trying to set up a safe haven for all her girlfriends, but deep inside she is scared of a lonely or tragic end for herself. A debut of great integrity.

Sinopsis: Las mujeres trans enfrentan violencia extrema en la Ciudad de México y las trabajadoras sexuales son aún más vulnerables. Este retrato crudo y profundamente conmovedor de Kenia ofrece una visión privilegiada del impacto que tiene la violencia en la comunidad y de lo compleja que es la vida para ellos. La película comienza poco después de que Kenia presenciara el asesinato de su amiga Paola por parte de un cliente.

La película sigue de cerca a Kenia. ¿Aceptará la familia enterrar a Paola tal como era: una extravagante mujer trans? Kenya se acerca a los seres queridos de Paola con gran respeto y comprensión, algo que ella rara vez experimenta. Cuando el asesino es liberado, ella se embarca en una larga batalla por la justicia, respaldada por sus hermanas.

Kenia ofrece a la cámara una bienvenida encantadora. A pesar del espectáculo exterior (tacones altos, pelucas, maquillaje, cirugía plástica), se exhibe una clara falta de vanidad. Ella también nos da la bienvenida a su mundo interior. Está tratando de crear un refugio seguro para todas sus amigas, pero en el fondo tiene miedo de un final solitario o trágico para ella. Un debut de gran entereza.
