Politics Are Never Pretty!
Capitol Barbie is a story that is yet to be told. In the series pilot audiences first meet Dolly Golightly and follow her first day as an intern for an ambitious congresswoman that plans to become the nation’s first latina president and Dolly’s relationships with fellow latinos on Capitol Hill. Once Dolly begins she soon discovers the dark truths about politics and how they work. She is forced to confront prejudices, conform and suffer the consequences when her identity as a transgender woman is outed with a relentless dismissal of the mere existence or concern for trans people. Capitol Barbie is an honest, striking look into the triumph of one woman whose story must not go untold. Filmed in NM.
Screenplay by trans and indigenous filmmakers, Riley Del Rey and Violet Martinez
