From the film’s opening monologue about a sex worker wrestling with a client over a gun, KOKOMO CITY is riveting. Filmmaker D. Smith makes a stellar debut as director, cinematographer, editor, and composer as she profiles four Black transgender sex workers in New York City and Atlanta. The women are raw and hilarious as they celebrate their self-realization in the face of discrimination and violence.  – Thom Powers
