The documentary “Kulana He Mahu: Remembering a Sense of Place” directed by Connie Florez, examines how colonialism has profoundly shifted attitudes toward gender and sexuality for indigenous Hawai’ians, and has shaped the marginalization of transgendered communities in Hawai’i today. This special screening will be accompanied by a selection from Florez’s current documentary project “The Glades Project” and a discussion with the director in dialogue with members of the Pacific LGBT community in NYC including Kristabelle; and Elizabeth Conley, MPH Sexuality & Health, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University. The program will be moderated by Gayatri Gopinath, the Director of the Gender & Sexuality Studies Program at the Department of Social and Cultural Analysis at NYU.

Connie Florez is the CEO of Hula Girl Productions, and the Director of Film Programming for the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival, and a current board member and former Executive Director for the Honolulu Gay & Lesbian Cultural Foundation.
