First up, a double bill featuring the universally acclaimed movie TANGERINE

It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. After hearing that her boyfriend/pimp cheated on her while she was in jail, Sin-Dee and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), set out to find him and teach him and his new lover a lesson. A decidedly modern Christmas tale told on the streets of L.A., director Sean Baker’s TANGERINE defies expectation at every turn.
