Shoreline’s 2nd annual Queer Film Festival kicks off Mon., Feb. 1 with a screening of KUMU HINA, “a uniquely Hawaiian love story.” The film shows at 12:30 p.m. in the PUB 9208.

KUMU HINA is a powerful film about the struggle to maintain Pacific Islander culture and values within the Westernized society of modern day Hawaii. It is told through the lens of an extraordinary Native Hawaiian who is both a proud and confident māhū, or transgender woman, and an honored and respected kumu, or teacher, cultural practitioner, and community leader.
