The FRAT HOUSE Niteclub / FH (Garden Grove / OC) is proud to present, from CASQUE D’OR FILMS: a special screening of "HOTEL GONDOLIN" — a documentary film by Argentinian director Fernando Lopez Escriva (2005)
The Gondolin Hotel in Buenos Aires is the home of 30 transgenders & transsexuals who work as prostitutes as the unique alternative to survive in a society that excludes them. This slice-of-life film focuses on the importance of freedom of gender identity, the everyday life of the transvestites in the Hotel, street prostitution, and the rising difficulties with the neighbors and the authorities.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Escriva’s wonderful film.
