Noho Hewa on screen tonight
The award-winning film will be screened again tonight.
Time: October 8, 2009 from 7pm to 9pm
Location: Windward Community College
Organized By: Koolaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club & Windward Community
College Hawaiian Studies Program
Winner of the Best Documentary Award at the Hawaii International Film
Festival (2008), will be showing at Windward Community College on
October 8th, at 7PM at the Paliku Theater. This screening is FREE to
all and is being sponsored by the Koolaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club and
Windward Community College Hawaiian Studies Program.
Recently completed and now available on DVD, the film is 10 minutes
longer than the unfinished version seen by standing room only crowds
last winter in Hawai’i and it has just finished a tour of Aotearoa
“Noho Hewa” ia about the most challenging issues facing Hawaiians
today: Akaka Bill vs. Independence, desecration of Hawaiian Burials
and sacred sites, GMO’S, militarism, poverty and U.S. economy and
culture used to ethnically cleanse Hawai’i of the Kanaka Oiwi. Filmed
over the course of 6 years, “Noho Hewa” is unambiguous, raw, and
emotional… it is the truth about Hawai’i.
