Film Screening: Homelani
Below is quoted from an online release sent out by the UH-Manoa Center for Pacific Islands Studies:
"'Homealani' will be shown Sunday, Dec. 13, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Princess Ruth Keelikolani Auditorium of the Kamehameha Schools Kapalama Campus, sponsored by Ke Alii Pauahi Foundation. Admission is free and there will be a question and answer session following the film.
'Homealani' is a film about filmmaker Ann Marie N Kirk's grandfather Colonel Oliver H Kupan. Kirk, an MA student at the Center for Pacific Islands Studies, says, 'It's a very personal film, but I hope people who see it will see the story of my grandfather speaks to many Hawaiians of his time who had to learn how to navigate and find balance living in a both a Hawaiian world and the Western world.'"
