BIXA TRAVESTY is a new documentary that “follows Linn da Quebrada, a black trans woman, performer and activist living in impoverished São Paulo. Her electrifying performances—with plenty of nudity—brazenly take on Brazil’s hetero-normative machismo.”*

The film—a Berlinale favorite directed by Kiko Goifman and Claudia Priscilla—screens this week at UCLA.
