When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina transwoman is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women became intimately involved in the case-Virgie Suarez an activist attorney, Meredith Talusan, a transgender journalist and Julita “Nanay Laude”, Jennifer’s mother. Together, they galvanised a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on the hardened legacy of U.S. imperialism in the Philippines.

A modern David and Goliath story, ‘Call Her Ganda’ fuses personal tragedy, human rights activism and the little-known history and complex aftermath of U.S. imperialism in the Philippines, forging a visually daring and profoundly humanistic geopolitical investigative exposé.

This film screening is organised in collaboration with SEED Foundation.

Apabila Jennifer Laude, seorang transgender dari Filipina, dibunuh dengan kejam oleh askar Amerika Syarikat, tiga orang wanita telah secara dekat memperjuangkan kes tersebut – peguam aktivis Virgie Suarez, wartawan transgender Meredith Talusan, dan ibu kepada Jennifer Julita ‘Nanay’ Laude – mengakibatkan kebangkitan politik, penuntutan keadilan, dan penentangan sejarah imperialisma Amerika Syarikat.

Seperti kisah David dan Goliath moden, ‘Call Her Ganda’ menggabungkan tragedi peribadi, aktivisma hak asasi manusia, dan sejarah yang tak diketahui, serta akibat rumit dari pemerintahan Amerika Syarikat di Filipina, menjadi sebuah pendedahan geopolitik yang berani dan humanis.
