Kokomo City, directed by D. Smith. (73 min). Not rated

A raw depiction of the lives of four Black trans sex workers as they confront the dichotomy between the Black community and themselves.

Look Back at It, directed by Felicia Pride (12 mins). Not rated

A forty-something single mother gets her groove back with a little assistance from her teenage daughter. Look Back at It is set in Baltimore and also serves as a proof of concept for a feature film of the same name. This short film will play before Kokomo City.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Tahtiana Fermin, founder of Bridges4Life, Whit Strub, Associate Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University.

This screening is presented in partnership with Newark LGBTQ Film Festival.
