Sean Baker's speedy ascent to the top rank of independent auteurs is evidenced by his two latest features, neatly assembled on a double bill by the American Cinematheque. The more recent of the two, The Florida Project, encourages the viewer to see through the eyes of a 6-year-old girl (Brooklynn Prince) during a languid summer in the American Southeast. Tangerine, famously shot on an Apple iPhone, chronicles the efforts of a transgender sex worker (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) to locate her cheating pimp. Each is an example of a newly emerging brand of cinematic humanism in an increasingly technocentric age. Baker will appear to discuss his work between films.
