Home / Now Showing / MAGDALENA VIRAGA
Shot in the bars and seedy hotels of East LA, this film about the inner life of a sex worker imprisoned for killing her pimp won the Los Angeles Film Critics
Association award for “Best Independent/Experimental Film of the Year”, and was featured in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Biennial as well as in over 40 other film festivals worldwide. Tinka Menkes brilliantly portrays the emotionally frozen protagonist on a circular inner journey, battling the material and psychic walls which imprison her.
