Engage with video art from the Museum's collection while you’re at home with Whitney Screens. This week's screening will present Wu Tsang's DAMELO TODO (Give Me Everything).

DAMELO TODO (Give Me Everything) is a semi-fictional film set in the Silver Platter, a Latinx queer bar in Los Angeles. The film recounts a story narrated and written by Raquel Gutierrez about a Salvadoran civil war refugee, Teódulo Mejía, who discovers the Silver Platter after moving to Los Angeles. Tsang interweaves Mejía’s story—arriving in Los Angeles, performing on the Silver Platter stage—with actual footage of the testimony of Alexis Giraldo, a transgender woman who was incarcerated in an all-male facility, played for the regulars of the bar.
