Tangerine is a film unlike virtually any other feature-length representation of trans lives. For this film analysis essay, consider the larger questions related to gender, sexuality, representation, intersectionality, agency, and other concepts we’ve studied the semester. What broader feminist theoretical concepts do you see Tangerine embodying? How might you argue the film itself theorizes, that is, offers a new way of understanding something larger about contemporary culture?
