The second, “Kumu Hina”, depicts the struggle to maintain Pacific Islander culture and values within the Westernized society of modern day Hawaiʻi. It is told through the lens of an extraordinary Native Hawaiian who is both a māhū, a transgender woman, and a kumu, or teacher, cultural practitioner, and community leader.

In the third, “Queen of the Desert”, we meet “real life Priscilla” Starlady, a transfeminine youth worker in Australia. The documentary follows her on a journey to Areyonga, an indigenous community in Central Australia, where she goes to work with a group of young people.

Our final documentary, “Transsexworks” takes us a lot closer to home, to the trans* sex workers of Froebenstr. in Berlin, many of whom are migrants, and subject to regular racist & transphobic abuse. The film follows local trans* organisers who work alongside the womxn to organise basic support and care structures.
