Deep Stealth Productions‘ short film “Casting Pearls” will have its Indianapolis premiere on November 14-16, 2008 as part of the Indianapolis LGBT film festival.
IUPUI Campus Center
420 University Blvd. (between Michigan and New York)
From the Frameline website:
Casting Pearls is a short comedic film which illustrates the difficulties transsexual women face in Hollywood via a hectic series of auditions endured by Cassandra, a transsexual actress (Calpernia Addams). Cassandra weathers the horrible, funny and cruel things said by various Hollywood professionals with plucky determination and professionalism, showing that decades of bias can’t hold back the real contributions of transgender people to the arts and media.
