Native-Hawaiian-made films

Just alerting readers of the Oiwi Film Festival opening today at The Honolulu Academy of Arts Doris Duke Theatre. It features the collective voices of Native Hawaiian filmmakers and runs through May 26. Tickets are affordable at $8 with a dollar off for students, seniors and military. If you’re a member of the Academy of Arts, five bucks gets you in. The programmers grouped the films into several themes:

Na alakai o Hawaii nei — Those who lead us in Hawaii
Ka malama ana i ka aina — Caring for our land
Ka pilina o ka poe Hawaii i ke kai — Hawaiians’ relationship to the sea
Ka ea Hawaii —Sovereignty
Na moolelo pokole — Short stories
Na hula o Hawaii — Hula, dance of Hawaii
Ka hoohanohano ana i ko kakou mau kupuna — Honoring our ancestors

Do check the schedule for which films are showing when. There are 19 short subjects and features. I found a comprehensive news-feature article and film festival schedule by reporter Gary C.W. Chun on the following link:

117th anniversary of the overthrow

This weekend marks the 117th anniversary of the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom. I expect Sovereignty Sunday activities in observation of the sad event at Iolani Palace and neighboring areas, but I have details of only one. If you know of anything else, please leave a comment. Click on the link below for the flyer and information about “Onipaa – Aloha Aina, Malama Aina Art & Poetry Exhibit.” Hawaiian studies professor and activist Haunani-Kay Trask is the scheduled keynote speaker at Saturday’s opening event.
