(USA, 2017, 105 min)
Directed By: David France
A fixture in NYC’s Greenwich Village and a stalwart advocate for gay rights, Marsha P. Johnson was a beloved, vivacious trans woman who has been called the Rosa Parks of the LGBTQ movement. Her tragic death in July 1992 was quickly dismissed as suicide by the NYPD. Director David France (Oscar-nominated HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE) uses his background in investigative journalism to dig deeper into the mystery of Marsha’s death while highlighting the very real dangers trans people still face.
