"Following one of the most gut-wrenching events in the history of the Filipino trans movement, Call Her Ganda is a staggering and thought-provoking documentary on the epidemic of violence against LGBTQ people."
Alexander Ryll - GAY ESSENTIAL

"CALL HER GANDA works best when it's focused on Laude and the case of her murder, an overwhelming showcase of empathy and persistence in the face of American racism and transmisogyny"
Juan Barquin - L.A. WEEKLY

"Even with its stumbling nature... CALL HER GANDA is still a valiant effort to fuse inquiry, testimony, heart and protest in dealing with its complex intertwining of facts and issues."
Robert Abele - LOS ANGELES TIMES

""My life has value," Ms. Laude once declared. She was right, and this film takes that truth to heart"
Ken Jaworowski - NEW YORK TIMES
