Wednesday, November 14th, 2012
12 PM - 104 Allen House

A brief discussion of the themes follows each screening.

About the film: Fred Martinez was nádleehί - a male-bodied person with a feminine nature, a special gift according to his ancient Navajo culture. Between tradition and controversy,
sex and spirit, freedom and fear, Two Spirits interweaves the story of Fred's journey toward acceptance. [Run time: 66 minutes]

About the  Social Justice Film Series
: Brought to you by the Center for Cultural Pluralism, the Fall 2012 Social Justice Film Series theme is '[Re]Framing OUR Reactions around Race' and offers participants an educational opportunity to explore through film and subsequent discourse and engage issues of identity in its various forms, visible and invisible. Films selected for the Social Justice Film Series have two viewings and are generally screened up to a half hour and followed by an engaged discourse on the themes by the participants. To be respectful of your time, it is our hope that this entire educational program does not exceed ninety minutes.
