About this Event

Kumu Hina, the final Fem Flicks Film Series event of the fall, will be screened in Room 250H at Willis Library on Wednesday, November 14. The screening is free, and lunch (in the form of pizza) will be provided if attendees choose not to bring their lunches.

Kumu Hina is the story of Hina Wong- Kalu, a transgender native Hawaiian teacher and cultural icon who brings to life Hawaii’s long-held embrace of mahu — those who embody both male and female spirit, and were traditionally respected as caretakers, healers, and keepers of ancient traditions.

The Fem Flicks Film Series is a joint effort of the UNT Women’s Studies Program, the UNT Multicultural Center and the UNT Media Library. A guest lecturer will accompany select events.

Fem Flicks is a free film series spotlighting the intersectional identities of all gender identities and expressions, and their impact(s) on society and vice versa. A brief discussion follows each screening. Fem Flicks is presented by the Multicultural Center, the Media Library, and the Women’s & Gender Studies Program.
