D. Smith
Documentary : 73' / Sex Work, Trans, Community, Relationship

Encounters and interviews with four Black trans sex workers in New York and Georgia. The protagonists discuss their lives with relish but without any sugar-coating, telling us about their dreams and memories, battles fought and crises overcome, lovers, friends and families, and how these relationships are marked by taboos and fetishisation, but also by their own desires.
