Kokomo City

Nominated for Best Documentary

Best Documentary Award given to the director and producer.


Director: D. Smith

Producers: Bill Butler, Harris Doran


In the wildly entertaining and refreshingly unfiltered documentary Kokomo City, filmmaker D. Smith passes the mic to four Black transgender sex workers in Atlanta and New York City – Daniella Carter, Koko Da Doll, Liyah Mitchell and Dominique Silver – who unapologetically break down the walls of their profession. Holding nothing back, the film vibrates with energy, sex, challenge and hard-earned wisdom.
