The Center for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Rice is pleased to collaborate with Houston PBS, Rice Cinema, and the Community Cinema series as they present this documentary by filmmaker Lydia Nibley, who explores the cultural context behind the tragic and senseless murder of Fred Martinez, a Navajo youth slain at the age of 16. Fred was part of an honored Navajo tradition—the nadleeh, or “two-spirit,” who possesses a balance of masculine and feminine traits.
The film will be shown at Rice Cinema on Wednesday, June 15, at 7pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Rice Cinema is located near campus entrance 8 on University Boulevard at Stockton.
