Call Her Ganda

Call Her Ganda

Philippines, United States | 2018 | 94 min | Tagalog | PJ Raval

When 26-year old Filipina transgender woman, Jennifer Laude, is found dead in a motel room, the perpetrator is quickly identified as U.S. marine Joseph Scott Pemberton. A military recruit in an unfamiliar land, Pemberton was on ‘liberty leave’ when he solicited Jennifer at a disco. On discovering that Jennifer was transgender, he murdered her. 

As Jennifer’s family copes with its loss, three women who are intimately invested in the case pursue justice — taking on hardened histories of U.S. imperial rule that have allowed previous American perpetrators to evade the consequences.

A contemporary David and Goliath story, Call Her Ganda follows three strong women as they take on some of the world’s most powerful institutions.
