POV Season 32
Trailer | 07/01/2019 | 2 Mins

When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina trans woman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case—an activist attorney (Virgie Suarez), a transgender journalist (Meredith Talusan) and Jennifer’s mother (Julita “Nanay” Laude)—galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of U.S. imperialism.

Critical Acclaim —

“Call Her Ganda (‘ganda’ means ‘beautiful’ in Tagalog) remains commendable for its focus on the case, and for its insistence that the crime against Ms. Laude not be forgotten.”

— Ken Jaworowski, The New York Times
