My Name was January / Across the Ocean

About this Event

My Name Was January

When a trans sister, January Marie Lapuz, is brutally murdered in

her own home, a community reacts and her friends and other trans women of colour come to share and voice their issues, concerns, and challenges. January was seen as a bright light in the lives of many. This is the story of January, a friend, a daughter, a person. This film will not only bring justice to January, but to all the women who have lost their lives. January had a beautiful soul, and now part of her soul rests in each and every one of us.

Across the Ocean

Nila and Holly cannot be more different- Nila is from Kerala, India and Holly is from California, US. Having never met each other, they are separated by two continents, two cultures, two languages and two lifestyle- in short, nothing common. Well, perhaps except their dreams. They both share a similar kind of dream- to get out of their country and explore another world. But while facing the society pressures and preconceived ideas, both ladies have to realize what is actually stopping them from achieving their dreams.
