Join us we consider this work of art in the context of films about intersectional LGBTQ themes. TWO SPIRITS Two Spirits interweaves the tragic story of a mother's loss of her child with a revealing look at a time when many Native American cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders. This documentary explores the life and murder of a boy who was also a girl, and the essentially spiritual nature of gender. (Directed by Lydia Nibley, 2009, 65 min.) Following the film, stay for a discussion with local documentary filmmaker PJ Raval who will share a sneak peek preview of his upcoming documentary that focuses on the brutal murder of a transwoman in the Philippines by a US Marine.
