When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina transwoman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case--Virgie Suarez, an activist attorney; Meredith Talusan, a transgender journalist; and Julita Nanay, Jennifer's mother--galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of US imperialism.


Critic Reviews for Call Her Ganda

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

With access to only one side of its central conflict, and a scattershot approach that skims over key details and points of interest, this well-intentioned documentary leaves audiences feeling like they're only getting part of a much larger story.

As suspenseful as it is moving.

April 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Raval makes the audience see the continued hatred and prejudice against trans women that often manifests into violence.

May 18, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

We have several very important issues all exploding at once here.

May 9, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This is a film that doesn't shy away from challenging anyone's attitudes about trans people and the ongoing effects of colonialism.

April 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A languidly told retrospective of Jennifer Laude's homicide, which meshes poignantly with the equally torpid, creaky judicial wheels of the U.S.-Filipino military industrial complex.
