Honolulu Advertiser - October 1, 2009

An award-winning documentary about the "occupation" of Hawai`i will be shown at 7 PM Oct. 8 at the Paliku Theatre at Windward Community College.

"Noho Hewa - The Wrongful Occupation of Hawai`i" is free and open to the public.

Winner of the Hawai`i International Film Festival's 2008 award for best documentary film, the 82-minute film offers an analysis about the connections between militarism, desecration and homelessness, and how these issues are related to Hawaiian sovereignty.

The film will be followed by a Q&A session with filmmaker Anne Keala Kelly.

The screening is sponsored by Ku Pono and the Ko`olaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club.

Donations will be accepted and a DVD of the film will be available for purchase.
