Tangerine MA 15+

Two women are silhouetted while standing by a highway at sunset. They are across the road from a billboard and telegraph poles and there are palm trees in the distance.

Shot entirely on iPhone, this breakout indie hit comes straight off the streets of Los Angeles.  

Fresh out of jail, sex worker Sin-Dee Rella discovers her lover (and pimp) Chester is cheating on her, with a cis woman no less.

Sin-Dee will scorch the streets of Tinseltown to find her man. But the streets are rough and perhaps it’s a different kind of love that’s needed to get by out here.  

‘Fired by zesty performances that crackle and burn with energy, Tangerine is a bittersweet affair underpinned by a winning sense of empathy and affection.’ – The Guardian
