Free CeCe (15*)

A still from Free Cece

This moving documentary tells the story of CeCe McDonald, a trans woman who was attacked on her way to the store with a group of friends, resulting in a man being killed.

CeCe was subsequently prosecuted and incarcerated in a men’s prison in Minnesota and an international campaign to free her garnered significant support from media and activists, including actress Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), who narrates the film.

Free CeCe presents some of the realities of trans lives, and the effects of structural oppression, while specifically exploring the role race, class, and gender played in CeCe’s case.
