Wendy Aguilar (Honduras 2007) participated in the XIV Icaro Film Festival, which took place in Guatemala City, November 24 to December 1, 2011. Wendy did the cinematography for the film “En mis Tacones” (In My Heels) which was nominated for best Central American documentary short. During the festival Wendy had the opportunity to bring awareness to the plight of the transgender community to a wide audience and mingle with other young film makers from the region.
“En mis Tacones”, is about the reality faced by the transgender community in Honduras after the June 2009 coup d’état. The film illustrates the violation of human rights, discrimination, political and military repression, assassinations and transphobia suffered by this community by highlighting the experiences of individual transgender women and men.
