Website:http://queerdocfest.org/Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/QDocFestAbout Kumu HinaAt a time when gender-nonconforming people are marginalized and mistreated the world over, Kumu Hina presents an intimate portrait of a proud and confident mahu (transgender) teacher who is passing on ancient Hawaiian culture and traditions to her students as she searches for love and a fulfilling romantic relationship in her own life.Over the course of a momentous year, Hina inspires a tomboyish young girl to claim her place as leader of a boys hula troupe, culminating in a rousing year-end performance at their inner-city public charter school. Hina also takes a chance at happiness when she marries an unpredictable young man from Tonga who finds it difficult to adjust to life in modern Honolulu.As the trials and tribulations of Hina's journey unfold, her Hawaiian roots and values give her the strength and wisdom to persevere, offering viewers a rare glimpse of island life that tourists rarely see and an understanding of the true meaning of aloha unconditional love and respect for all.Directors: Dean Hamer and Joe WilsonUSA201474 minutesCommunity Partners:API PridePortland ParentsFamilies & Friends of Lesbians and GaysTransActive Gender CenterQDoc:http://www.queerdocfest.org/film/kumu-hina/Tumblr:http://kumuhina.tumblr.com/video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDaAoYZUlUAMap & Directions

“Then, one day I came home from college for a weekend and caught a show where this guy Joe, from the band, was performing songs reminiscent of early Dashboard Confessional, as Feeling Left Out. I really dug his sound and picked up the 4 song EP, reviewing it for zine I was writing for at the time and eventually using a track or two on some mixtapes for lady friends. Fast forward at least a decade from my first interaction with Joe Wilson’s musical output and I find myself listening to something altogether different… layered yet simple, mature yet playful, and well… really good. On his new release, To Build or Burn is new territory for Joe Wilson. Admittedly, I’d lost track with Joe a bit in the in-between, but having spent a bit of time catching up, this is by far his most grown up album to date.”
