Offerings at
the academy

Now that the Louis Vuitton Hawaii International Film Festival is coming to an end, are you wondering where you can watch those kind of offerings?

Fiji-made film wins at festival

"The Land Has Eyes," the first feature film set and shot on the Fiji islands and produced and directed by Jeannette Paulson Hereniko and husband Vilsoni Hereniko, respectively, won Best Dramatic Feature at Toronto's imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival.

The just completed festival promotes, advances, and fosters emerging and established Canadian Aboriginal filmmakers and other media artists in an international context.

The film tells the story of a young woman who clears her family name after it has been wrongly besmirched. She allows herself to be inspired by the mythical Warrior Woman.

The Honolulu Academy of Arts has been showing an array of movies at its Doris Duke Theatre. To assist film buffs, a monthly film list will run on the last Saturday of every month.
