Hawaii International Film Festival

Hawaii International Film Festival 

Thursday, November 21-23, 2019; All shows in McCoy Studio Theater; show times vary

As the vanguard forum of international cinematic achievement in the Asia-Pacific region, Hawai'i International Film Festival (HIFF) recognizes new and emerging talent and facilitates dynamic cultural exchange through the cinema arts. The festival includes documentaries and film shorts, including premieres, experimental films, animation/digital works, and first features by new directors. HIFF selections and audiences reflect the diverse multicultural face of Hawai'i - helping to enrich, enlighten, and broaden support for Asian and Pacific films.

Film titles & show times:           

Thursday, November 21

Tokyo Hula; 7:00 pm
Today it is estimated there are nearly two million people dancing hula in Japan—a figure greater than the entire population of Hawaiʻi. With more people dancing hula in Japan than in Hawaiʻi where the native art was born, this explosive growth has created a multimillion-dollar industry based on culture as commodity. What motivates Japanese students and teachers to dance hula and how is it translated into a foreign culture? How do native Hawaiians participate in this cross-cultural exchange? Run time 81 min.

Preceded by short film Voices of the Forest

Mo Te Iwi: Carving for the People; 4:00 pm
This film is an intimate journey into the life and work of Māori master carver Rangi Hetet. At 82, Rangi is one of the last traditional Māori carvers alive today who learned their craft in an era that straddled the ways of the old tohunga whakairo (master carvers) and those of the modern world. “Carving does not exist alone as a skill–it exists within a body of knowledge and that knowledge exists and is held by a whole community of people.” Run time 133 min.

Thirteen-year-old David Kalama dreams of escaping rural Hawai‘i, but when Jonah Morris, a white kid from Phoenix moves into the neighborhood, a series of events irrevocably change the trajectory of David’s life and those closest to him. Run time 90 min.
