Wildness a film by Wu Ingrid Tsang
A hybrid documentary/narrative feature film depicting Latina transgender women who build community with queer performance artists at downtown Los Angeles bar, The Silver Platter - an historic staple of MacArthur Park that has been home for Latin/LBGT immigrant communities since 1963.
With a magical-realist flourish, the film depicts young artists who create a weekly performance art/dance party which explodes into creativity and conflict.
The film addresses the intersection of economic, social, and legal factors that contribute to the transgender community’s profound vulnerability, and explores the emotional and intellectual forces that build social movements of liberation.
