As part of the Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign, the Clark community can view an online screening of the Spanish-language film “Daughter, Sister, Mother” today.
Portland Community College’s Southeast Queer Resource Center, Queer Trans and People of Color Club, and Women’s Resource Center are collaborating to host the event.
The film follows the story of Shakey Estrada, a young Mexican trans woman, as she transitions gender. Touching on the roles that Estrada plays in her family’s life, “Daughter, Sister, Mother” runs only 15 minutes long. The trailer can be found here.
The documentary is anthropologist Dr. Teresa Delfin’s debut film. Delfin has extensively researched gender and sexuality in Latin America, and currently teaches anthropology at California State Polytechnic University.
The online screening is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on April 29. Anyone who would like to attend may register prior to the event here.
The event is open to the public and free of charge. There is no violence or trauma discussed in the film.
After the screening Delfin and Estrada will both be present to talk about the showing and answer questions.
