Film Screening and Debut: I’m The Queen (2010)

August 14, 2010 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The debut documentary directed and produced by Josue Pellot and Henrique Cirne-Lima, I’m the Queen takes a look at the often unobserved life of Chicago’s Puerto Rican transgendered community. In this film, Pellot and Cirne-Lima document the Cacique Pageant, the first annual transgendered pageant held in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood. The film exposes the restructuring of the family unit experienced by pageant participants who are often distanced from their biological family only to find kinship among others in the Puerto Rican transgendered community. I’m the Queen Josue Pellot and Henrique Cirne-Lima 88 minutes
