Jim Hodges’s sculpture With Liberty and Justice for All (A Work in Progress) is a pledge, a call to action, and a platform for dialogue. Join us we consider this work of art in the context of films about intersectional LGBTQ themes.
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 U.S. Marine. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
