Watch: First Red Band Trailer for Sundance Indie Gem 'Tangerine'

There are plenty of independent films that go on to be celebrated by audiences and critics alike, but the Sundance selected Tangerine is a true indie. The film was shot on an iPhone 5S using an $8 app called Filmic Pro and some prototype lenses from Moondog Labs, all with a very small budget. And the result is a unique, intimate, funny, touching and fantastic story of friendship between two transgender women (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor) as they parade around the city of Los Angeles, looking for one of their boyfriends who has supposedly been sleeping around. It's one to go out of your way to see. Watch!

Here's the red band trailer for Sean Baker's Tangerine from Magnolia & Magnet:



Tangerine is directed by Sean Baker (Starlet, Prince of Broadway), who co-wrote the script with Chris Bergoch. It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone of Sinister) hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. The film premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and Magnolia Pictures & Magnet Releasing send it to theaters this summer starting on July 10th.

    Looks like an annoying piece of shit... The whole iPhone-gimmick does kinda make me want to see it, though.

    2015's Boyhood.
    • Nahhhhh. No way. I don't think there is a film this year that can compare to Boyhood.
      • ragethorn
        I just mean that because of the gimmick.
  • Looks fun! Hope there isn't took much drama.
