Pride Month Movie: Tchindas Tonight At The Bezazian Branch Library
As part of Pride Month, the Bezazian Branch Library will screen the movie Tchindas tonight, a documentary about Carnivale on the African island of Cape Verde, and the well-loved trans woman at the center of it. The screening is at 6pm. The library is located at Magnolia and Ainslie.
"Within a small, tropical Cape Verdean Island, the beloved Tchinda is hard at work preparing for a Carnival she hopes will capture the town’s imagination.
Despite her great reputation, Tchinda remains humble and every afternoon she happily tours the neighborhood to sell her best coxinhas, a classic Brazilian treat: delicious fried balls of chicken.
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."
