    Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature review


    2010 constituted a landmark year for Native Hawaiian filmmakers with the premiere of the Ōiwi Film Festival, which ran from 1-26 May at the Honolulu Academy of Arts Doris Duke Theatre. Although Native Hawaiians have been active in the filmmaking process for at least the last forty years, the presentation of a collective body of their work in festival form has never been achieveduntil now. The film festival was the culmination of an eight-month-long collaboration between film curator Gina Caruso and Hawaiian filmmaker Ann Marie Nālani Kirk; Kirk's two films Happy Birthday, Tutu Ruth and Homealani (the subject of this review) were featured in the festival lineup.
