The story behind the film
I made Trashy Booty as a fun, absurdist short that features two trans characters, without an emphasis on a coming out story, or other typical trans narratives. I wanted to tell the story of two best friends who happen across a hitchhiking robot. The robot is loosely inspired by real events in Philadelphia, after a hitchhiking robot met an untimely end.
