Angie Zapata, the Greeley teen who was brutally murdered by a man because of his anti-transgender bias, will live on the big screen this weekend.

Angie Zapata (born "Justin" in Brighton) met Allen Andrade on a networking site. Andrade, in a furious rage, beat Angie to death with a fire extinguisher. Almost two years ago, on April 22, 2009 a jury convicted Andrade of murder as well as a bias-based crime.

This local story is told by local filmmakers. Denver company Loco Lane Filmworks, helmed by Director Alan Dominguez, created this 1-hour documentary by speaking to Angie's family and friends as well as showing photographs of Angie. Scored by Mackenzie Gault (of Flobots fame) and featuring a song by L.A.-based band Ozomatli, the film focuses on Angie's life as remembered by her family as well as the trial of her killer.
