wildness the movie
There is a bar called the Silver Platter in the MacArthur park neighborhood of Los Angeles, which has been a safe space for immigrant transgender women for decades.
In 2008, Director Wu Tsang teamed up with Ashland Mines (Dj TOTAL FREEDOM) and Daniel Pineda (1/2 Dj-team NGUZUNGUZU) to throw a weekly party at the bar on an off night of the week. They were inspired by the Silver Platter scene, and built an exciting collaboration with the owners and some of the regulars. For a brief period of time, this unlikely union produced an explosion of underground music, dancing, and art. But the party's rising popularity cast a more mainstream spotlight on the Silver Platter, raising questions about gentrification. Ultimately real life overcame the drama when the unexpected death of one of the owners transformed the fate of everyone involved.http://wildnessmovie.com/index.html
