Boquita presents a day-in-the-life portrait of a transgender performer from
the Dominican Republic who resides in Jamaica Plain, MA. Originally shot in
16mm, it is a 10-minute exploration of Boquita in various facets of her life:
day job at an AIDS prevention center, night job at various gay clubs in
Massachusetts, and at home getting ready for a show or relaxing with friends.
Throughout the film we hear informal conversations about migrant queer
identities, conflicting relationships with the home country, and
inter-Caribbean relations. The short documentary is in Spanish with English
subtitles.
