Mala Mala

The transgender community of Puerto Rico is as diverse as it is vibrant. A unique exploration of self-discovery and activism, Mala Mala features a cast of unforgettably colourful and vivacious subjects that includes LGBT advocates, business owners, sex workers and a group of drag performers who call themselves The Doll House. This is a passionate and winning documentary, one that portrays a fight for personal and community acceptance punctuated by discouraging lows and triumphant highs.
