Pono Guerrero and Noelani Iokepa star in "Ka'ililauokekoa"
at 8 tonight on KHET/PBS. The film premiered at the Hawai'i
International Film Festival last year where it won the Aloha
Airlines Hawaii Video and Film Maker Award. It also won
a Kahili Award this year from the Hawaii Visitors and
Convention Bureau and was shown at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

Hawaiian-language love story airs tonight on PBS

KHET/PBS broadcasts a special Hawaiian-language love story tonight. "Ka'ililauokekoa," a Hawaiian legend about a Kauai chiefess, high chief and his magical flute, will be aired at 8 tonight (repeats at 9 p.m. Saturday).

The film was produced by 'Aha Punana Leo, the Hawaiian Immersion program, and was done completely in Hawaiian, even behind the scenes. Kala'iokona Ontai, director of the film, said Hawaiian words were created for filmmaking techniques, such as "panning" and "zooming in," opening another career avenue for Hawaiian speakers.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with cast and Hawaiian-language experts about the making of the film and how it affects the future of the Hawaiian language.
