About this submission

Two dumpster diving trans women find a hitchhiking robot in the outskirts of Philadelphia, and they join the robot in a lesson of human kindness, until the strength of their friendship is tested by an unkind world.

TRASHY BOOTY portrays a friendship between two trans women in their 20s. A hitchhiking robot reveals hidden tension in their friendship, while the two struggle to navigate life. Friendships between trans people are rarely shown on screen, and TRASHY BOOTY seeks to increase positive representation for trans women through dark comedy.

TRASHY BOOTY will be written and directed by Iris Devins. The film will be produced by Rafael “Q” Quinde.
