The first even of the film festival will be held on Friday, March 15th at Hale Na'au Pono in Waianae. The film will be Leitis in Waiting. Light meal and refreshments will be served. Leitis in Waiting is the story of Joey Mataele and the Tonga leitis, an intrepid group of native transgender women fighting a rising tide of religious fundamentalism and intolerance in their South Pacific Kingdom. With unexpected humor and extraordinary access to the Kingdom's royals and religious leaders, Joey's emotional journey reveals what it means to be different in a society ruled by tradition, and what it takes to be accepted without forsaking who youare.
