“Entre Amigxs”: A Tribute to Mexico City’s Trans Community

“Entre Amigxs,” a cinematic homage to the transgender community in Mexico City, encapsulates “T4T” – a concept where transgender individuals converse directly from the heart, liberated from the necessity of being interpretable to cisgender society. This series is dedicated to sharing stories that highlight our joy, pleasure, rage, resilience, eccentricities, dreams, and love. Every thought or experience, no matter how unique or unusual, is valued here.

The film, a montage featuring Super 8, 16 mm film, and camcorder footage, delves into the lives of queer and trans artists in Mexico City as they carve their niche outside of mainstream culture.

The Genesis of “Entre Amigxs”

To create the film, Robert and I connected with various queer and trans artists on Instagram, inviting them to join our venture. This project was more than filmmaking; it was a means to intimately engage with admired individuals in a new city. We adopted an experiential production method, hoping to capture the magical essence of our time with Diego. This method reflected our own perceptions of being “in progress,” exploring whether our curiosity and dedication to the discovery process were enough to shape the film.
