In 2014, 26-year-old Jennifer Laude, a transgender Filipina called “Ganda” (“Beauty” in Tagalog), was found murdered in the hotel room she shared with Joseph Pemberton, a 19-year-old American marine whom she met earlier in the evening. After Pemberton’s arrest for her murder, the trial and justice sought on her behalf, on which this documentary focuses, brings to light the racial prejudices, overt homophobia/transphobia, and centuries-old colonial attitudes prevalent on many United States military bases abroad. 


This is a free but ticketed event.
