Special Pride Preview screening of Mutt - which took Sundance and Berlinale by storm!


Over the course of 24 breathless hours in New York City, twentysomething trans guy Feña (newcomer Lío Mehiel, winner of a Special Jury Award at Sundance for their performance) must contend with an onslaught of aggravations, surprise encounters, and emotional choices. Laundromats, subway turnstiles, and airport transfers are the hectic background to this emotional drama that overlaps past, present, and future.


Mutt earns its most difficult discussions through its tenderness toward each character’s struggle with the complexity of trans life, Latinx life in America, and human life at large.


Followed by a reception in the Jane Peck Gallery.
