GLBT History Museum: Evoking Two Spirit Experience Onscreen

November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

An evening of short films created by Two Spirit people offer insight into their lives and their spirituality. Most of the films were produced through the QWOCMAP – Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project. A discussion with the filmmakers follows the screening.

“Renacimiento de una Bruja” (2008); 9 minutes. Filmmaker: Zemaya. Many years after a Two Spirit Xicana woman raised in the city experiences a spiritual awakening that connects her more deeply with her ancestors, she is guided to live on a country hilltop.
