XENG LOR, Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, will study the history of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Hmong villages and cities in Laos and Thailand. Lor has videotaped interviews with Hmong gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in the Upper Midwest and California. He now wishes to expand that investigation to understand what happened to GLBT Hmong in Laos and Thailand 30 to 60 years ago and what happens to them now. Did they ever marry? How did they live their lives in Laos and Thailand? He hopes to gather enough information through field research and taped conversations to move forward on his concept for a documentary film.

DIANE FRAHER received support for The Reawakening, a character-driven dramatic feature film on contemporary Native American tradition and culture, based on the themes of personal redemption and the power of love. The Reawakening is a contemporary story set in the corporate legal world. It is an action story depicting prison life in a very racially corrupt prison bureaucracy. It is also a story of personal redemption. How can an "urban" Indian balance an affluent life style with the traditional ways of his Native background? The Reawakening portrays the struggle for personal redemption through a return to traditional Native American spiritual values, the love of family, childhood friends and the elders of the Nation.
