***Queer identities and sexualities in Cape Verde & Discussion with filmmaker Lolo Arziki***

“Tchinda is one of most beloved women in Cape Verde, especially after she came out as a transgender person in the local newspaper in 1998. Since then, her name has become the term used by locals to name queer Cape Verdeans. Filmmakers Marc Serena and Pablo García Pérez de Lara have crafted a lush, perceptive documentary that at times feels akin to a fairy tale. The film reveals a hidden landscape tucked far away from the world we know, where trans inclusion and teamwork make up the fundamental structure of a truly magical community and culture.” “Tchindas”/ 2015 / Original language: Cape Verdean Creole / Subtitles: En…glish / Duration: 94min. http://www.tchindas.com/ ************************************************************************ The documentary will be preceded by Lolo Arziki’s self-portrait, an intimate and personal experience about being a woman and the affirmation of her sexuality within the Cape Verdean cultural context. “Relatos de uma Rapariga Nada Púdica”/ 2016 / Original:Portuguese / Subtitles: English / Duration: 4min. https://www.facebook.com/Storiesofanindecentgirl/ ************************************************************************
