OFFICIAL SELECTION: Tribeca Film Festival

Oscar-nominated director David France follows an ongoing inquiry into the mysterious death of pioneering trans activist Marsha P. Johnson.  In his stunningly filmed documentary, her story becomes a catalyst to examine a legal system that regularly brushes away acts of violence targeting the trans community. It is a bold, engaging call to action, celebrating not only the lives and work of those on the front-lines at Stonewall, but the men and women who continue their efforts today. ~ Mark Thiedeman
