“CAUGHT (CAER) is a collaborative documentary using fictional as well as mainstream observation filmmaking methods to express the struggles for recognition and justice of trans Latina women working in the NYC sex industry. The film is the result of the collaboration between Nicola Mai and the Transgrediendo Intercultural Collective, a grass-roots association defending the rights of transgender Latina migrant women in Queens, New York City. It is also a tribute to the work and legacy of Lorena Borjas, the mother of Latin transgender women living in Queens, who was one of the first victims of COVID-19 in New York in March 2020.”

 

CAER (CAUGHT)  was selected in several international festivals as : Festival Jean Rouch (2022), the Outfest Fusion LGBTQ People of Color Film Festival 2021; the Sheffield DocFest 2021 (UK competition).
