Tangerine

Join Indievents and Club David, Sunday, September 20th, for the South Dakota Premiere of Tangerine.

Tangerine, the first feature film shot entirely on an I-Phone made its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It has played numerous festivals around the world and most recently screened opening night at The Fantasia International Film Festival.

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, STARLET, "Generation Kill") 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. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. Director Sean Baker's prior films (STARLET, PRINCE OF BROADWAY) brought rich texture and intimate detail to worlds seldom seen on film. Tangerine follows suit, bursting off the screen with energy and style. A decidedly modern Christmas tale told on the streets of L.A., Tangerine defies expectation at every turn.

"IT JUMPS OFF THE SCREEN AND WOWS YOU LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS. A groundbreaking film that leaves you in stitches while quietly breaking your heart. A VISUALLY INNOVATIVE KNOCKOUT THAT GRABS YOU FROM THE FIRST FRAME." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"IT'S LIKE NOTHING YOU'VE SEEN BEFORE."- Brian Moylan, The Guardian

"Trashy, lurid, and hilariously profane -- exploitation in the best, most cinematic sense -- but without ever losing the thread of human ache that connects the characters to each other." - Wesley Morris, Grantland

"A brief, strange and deeply rewarding trip and ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AMERICAN FILMS OF THE YEAR. A gorgeous, timely and possibly profound human comedy." - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

"BOTH HILARIOUS AND HEART-ATTACK SERIOUS. What's extraordinary is that it's everything an entertaining, old-fashioned, mainstream Hollywood comedy should be and no longer is. THESE CHARACTERS DESERVE A PLACE AT THE TABLE THE WAY THIS MOVIE DESERVES A PLACE AT THE MULTIPLEX." - David Edelstein, New York

"RAUCOUS AND BAWDY. By the end, Baker and his actors have led us to a place beyond comedy -- you may still be laughing, but your breath catches a little on the way out." - Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

Preceding the film will be Brian Benson's award winning short film, My Life is a Dream, starring Cousin Wonderlette!

The screening will be held at Club David in Sioux Falls on Sunday, September 20, 2015, and will begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are only $8 in advance and $12 at the door.
