Kumu Hina ~ A Place in the Middle


This trailer is for a film on gender inclusivity in Hawaiian culture

At a time when gender non-conforming 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.
