    🎥 Film Synopsis: Kokomo City marks the debut of D. Smith, a two-time Grammy-nominated producer, singer, and songwriter. This groundbreaking documentary invites you into the lives of four Black transgender sex workers, Daniella Carter, Koko Da Doll, Liyah Mitchell, and Dominique Silver, as they bravely share their experiences in Atlanta and New York City. The film, unfiltered and wildly entertaining, is a powerful narrative breaking the walls of their profession.

    Produced by Lena Waithe, Kokomo City received critical acclaim and won multiple awards, including the Sundance Film Festival’s NEXT Innovator Award, NEXT Audience Award, and the Berlinale’s Audience Award in the Panorama Documentary section.

    🌍 About the Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival (NIHRFF): The Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival (NIHRFF) stands as Germany’s most prominent film festival centred around human rights. Since 1999, this biannual festival has been a powerful platform, showcasing international film art that resonates with conscience from all corners of the globe.

    With three international competitions, a distinguished jury, approximately 50 filmmakers, a variety of industry-focused activities, and numerous premieres, NIHRFF has evolved into one of Europe’s most prestigious thematic film festivals.

Drawing around 10,000 visitors per edition, it has cemented its status as Nuremberg’s beloved film festival, bridging regional roots with an expansive international reach. Stepping away from the cinematic shadows of major cities like Munich and Berlin, the festival unfolds a captivating film program every two years, offering a professional setting complemented by a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere.
