DAMELO TODO (Give Me Everything), 2010

DAMELO TODO is a short hybrid narrative-documentary that takes place during WILDNESS, a performance/party that happened for two years at the Silver Platter bar in Los Angeles. The film depicts a fictional protagonist, Teódulo Mejía, a 15 year-old Salvadorian civil war refugee arriving to Los Angeles in 1985, who discovers community support among trans women at the bar. Based on a short story written by Raquel Gutierrez, and adapted to screen by Tsang, DAMELO TODO fictionalizes a larger narrative about the collaboration and tenuous coalition between the Silver Platter and the young artists of WILDNESS.

With support from Good Works Foundation, Arts Engine, Wexner Center for the Arts, and ARC Los Angeles
