An invaluable look into the lives of the trans community in post-Franco Madrid, this newly restored docu-fiction hybrid is ripe for rediscovery. A group of trans women converse with disarming candor about their lives, transitions, and experiences with prostitution, while filmed interludes draw us into each of their day-to-day lives. Equal parts empathetic and frank, Dressed in Blue is an essential addition to the canon of pioneering queer cinema.
