The second feature film from photojournalist Jessica Dimmock and newcomer Christopher LaMarca, “The Pearl,” will receive its international debut at the True/False Film Festival this Thursday, March 3. Dimmock previously produced and served as the cinematographer for the 2011 drama “Without.” LaMarca recently helmed the upcoming documentary “Boone,” which has been billed as a sensory and unsentimental peek behind the veil of the utopian dream of farming and will screen later this month at SXSW.
The movie is set in the hyper-masculine culture of Pacific Northwest logging towns, as four middle-aged transgender women struggle to find their true identity and solace among one another. Each of them must overcome their own personal struggles in order to discover happiness and peace.
No limited or wide release date has been set for “The Pearl.” See the poster below.
