A story of two transgender sex workers in West Hollywood who set out to track down a cheating boyfriend on Christmas Eve. 'Tangerine' marks the cinematic debut of transgender actresses Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, as well as questioning the perceived rules of film-making: it is the first-ever feature film to be shot on an iPhone. "Gloriously shaky, urgent, and improvised." (Variety)
