8:00PM NEWFILMMAKERS FEATURE FILM PRESENTATION

Timothy Wolfer THE RIGHT GIRLS (2019, 76 minutes, digital)
In The Right Girls, the viewer is given a front row seat to one of the most harrowing and inspiring journeys in recent memory:  that of a group of transgender women who joined the 2018 Large Migrant Caravan.  Strangers at the outset of their voyage, Valentyna, Joanne, and Chantal make the decision to join together to keep each other safe on the 2000+ mile trek, where they confront harassment, discrimination, cartels, and the looming prospect of incarceration at the US border.  The Right Girls is the story of the extraordinary lengths a group of women are willing to go to in order to live freely as themselves.
