Translatina, a documentary on the lives of trans women in Latin America, will see its D.C. debut next week at the Pan American Health Organization. The film tackles a host of issues affecting the community—-from sex work to sexual assault to homelessness to HIV to  police brutality: “We hit them, with no shame, because they are men,” one police officer says in the film. “They are transvestites. They are homosexuals.” Screening details after the jump.
