"Two-Spirit Powwow" shows how the San Francisco nonprofit Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) has hosted an annual queer-friendly powwow since 2012, the first and largest LGBTQI-hosted one of its kind in North America. The film tracks growth from the modest one-room inaugural dance to the huge events now conducted at a massive venue.

"Expect a Miracle: Finding Light in the Darkness of a Pandemic," is the dual story of the AIDS crisis in San Diego and Fraternity House - the only hospice in San Diego County that took patients near death to give them a safe place to die with dignity and love.
