Two Spirits

[FILM] Saturday, Sept. 15

In 2001, 16-year-old Fred Martinez was beaten to death by an 18-year-old acquaintance in an act driven by hate and misunderstanding. The documentary Two Spirits captures the short life and tragic death of the transgender Navajo teen, and it also celebrates the customs of his tribe, which honored those who expressed multiple genders. The film shows that progress is not just forward movement, but a complicated process that learns from history, tradition, spirituality and tragedy. 2 p.m.; Clark County Library, 1401 E. Flamingo Road, 507-3459,, free
