SUNDAY FUN DAY (2016)
A teenager and a solo mum prepare to have their own fun on a Sunday. Tiger knows exactly how the world looks at her, but still fights to be accepted by her peers. Acceptance in this case is to be left alone without question. — CF
LEITIS IN WAITING
Dean Hamer, Joe Wilson, Hina Wong-Kalu (2017)
Leitis in Waiting is the story of Joey Mataele and the Tonga leitis, an intrepid group of transgender women fighting a rising tide of religius fundamentalism and intolerance in their South Pacific kingdom. With unexpected humour and extroadinary access to Tonga’s royals and leaders, this 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 you are.
