Tangerine is the Sundance hit that tells the fictional story of Alexandra and Sin-Dee Rella, two transgender African-American prostitutes and their Christmas Eve quest for revenge, after they find out Sin-Dee's boyfriend has been cheating on her. Shot entirely on an iPhone 5s, Tangerine tells of the real life struggles trans sex-workers on the corner of Santa Monica and Highland face. It takes us through prostitution, jail, drug-use and abuse - but all of it coated in a thick layer of humour. "I'll make this film with you if you promise two things," Mya (who plays Alexandra) told the director Sean Baker. "One, I want you to go for it in terms of the realism. You need to show how hard it is for the women out here and I don't want you to shy away from things. But I also want this film to be hilarious because I want this film to be entertainment for the women out here as well."

i-D is teaming up with Underground Film Club to present a special showing of the film on November 12th. Praised by both film critics and members of the LGBT community, Tangerine is comedy gold you won't want to miss. We're giving away 10 pairs of tickets to the screening. To enter, users must like i-D on Facebook and sign up to our newsletter, following the steps below.
