For the first film club of 2019 Girofard Bordeaux offers for the first time to gather around a documentary on Tuesday, January 15 at 20h Girofard. "Angel" a film about the weight of homophobia in Latin American societies, an epic and endearing confusing documentary awarded in 2011 a prize for the best film against discrimination.


Angel, a 36-year-old Ecuadorian transvestite who prostitutes in Paris, gets a residence permit. For Christmas, he can finally return to his country, Ecuador, and find his family he left five years ago.
The film traces this two-month trip with Angel, a deep immersion in a complex and difficult to access universe. Illustration of the dynamics related to the remittances of immigrants to their families, Angel is a film about the weight of homophobia in Latin American societies. With the main setting of a poor neighborhood of Guayaquil, this documentary tells the epic story of a character as confusing as endearing.
Divergenti Trans Film Festival - Bologna (2011) - Marcella di Folco Award for the Best Film Against Discrimination.

A moment of exchange and debate will be put in place at the end of the viewing of the film, and we invite you if you wish to bring something to drink and / or eat so that we can share together at the end of the projection.
