Our distributor let us know that “Casting Pearls” has been chosen to screen in the 22nd London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. The festival, organized by the British Film Institute, is the third largest film festival in the UK and attracts audiences of over 25,000. The LLGFF will run from 27 March – 10 April 2008.
Casting Pearls illustrates the difficulties transsexual women face in Hollywood via a hectic series of auditions endured by Cassandra, a transsexual actress. Calpernia (who plays the actress) is scheduled to appear at the London event and to participate in a forum about transgender and media.
