I HATE NEW YORK

I HATE NEW YORK

By Gustavo Sánchez

New York City. Over a decade, the director delves into the private world of four of the Big Apple’s most famous underground artists and trans activists: Amanda Lepore, Chloe Dzubilo, Sophia Lamar and T De Long. The result is an intimate portrait of these icons: little by little, their testimonies reveal fragments of a past – sometimes dramatic, always fascinating and simply extraordinary – that formed their identities and transformed their lives. Their words, fears and hopes take the audience from an outsider’s point of view to becoming emotionally invested in their destiny.
