#V015
“Adapted from the legends of Pele and produced in the Isles of Paradise, this tale is handed down through generations by the Polynesians”. So begins this 1934 tale of love and courtship in the South Seas, set amidst idyllic island scenes of daily life; a courtship that is interrupted by the intervention of Pele, fire goddess of the Kilauea volcano.
As an old woman, Pele is filled with evil desire for the handsome island chief and transforms herself into a beautiful young girl to seduce him. But the chief already has a sweetheart: the lovely Lani, who dances her sensuous “Hula of the Flower” for her beloved to the strains of the steel guitar. Not to be outdone by her rival, Pele dons a grass skirt to compete for the chief’s affection. When the chief chooses Lani, jealous Pele seeks revenge. (26 minutes)
Also includes the cartoon "BETTY BOOP’S BAMBOO ISLE": Betty and her pal Bimbo are shipwrecked on a tropical island where Bimbo is mistaken for a king. Includes a hula performance by The Royal Samoans, that Betty dances exactly the same later in the program. (8 minutes)

     The compelling story of the native Hawaiian people, a race displaced and now on the verge of extinction, is brilliantly told in this award-winning film written by a former Miss Hawaii and descendant of Hawaiian chiefs.  Here is the history of the islands as foreigners brought disease, gained control, and tried to destroy the Hawaiian culture, all the while profiting from its exploitation.  Filled with lots of well researched vintage photos and rare films, including many hula dancers, Queen Liliuokalani in her final years,  Hollywood movies, important historical events, and more.  Excellent!

#V525D
    Mana I Ka Leo Power of the Voice examines oli (the Hawaiian tradition of chanting), while taking the audience on a visual journey through some of the most majestic locations in Hawaii.  We experience this through the eyes of three contemporary practitioners who have dedicated much of their lives to preserving and perpetuating the voices and words of their kupuna (elders).  Dr. Kamana`opono Crabbe from the island of O`ahu, shares how oli has helped him understand the Hawaiian worldview prior to western influence and why it’s important that he continues to pass on this knowledge today.  Kaumakaiwa Kanaka`ole describes his obligation and commitment to maintain and preserve the knowledge of the ancestral memories for the next generation.  Hokulani Holt from the island Maui converses with the setting sun and preserves the Hawaiian heritage.
     Filmed at stunning locations revered to the oli practitioners, this film gives the audience a rare in-depth glimpse at this sacred tradition.  HIFF Audience Award Winner Favorite Short Film of the 2010 Hawaii International Film Festival

#V459D

In 1976, a voyaging canoe set sail from Hawai`i to Tahiti for the first time in over 600 years. Accompanying these mariners aboard their historic voyage was a single book. Over 30 years later, the tale told in those pages comes to life through the images of Herb Kawainui Kane and the vision of filmmaker Paul Csige.

Following a crushing defeat in battle, an island people are forced into exile by the victors. In a dream, the chief of the vanquished envisions hope in the form of a guiding bird that will lead them across the unknown sea to a new home.

Canoes are carved; provisions collected and so begins the voyage to find a new home. With only the stars and the promise of land to guide them, they sail north. But life on the sea is not easy. Fish must be caught for food and rain collected for water. Through windless doldrums and horrific storms, they persevere to find their new home, for there is no turning back.

#V495D
The incredible true story of Hawaiian princess Ka'iulani comes to the screen in this historical drama. The year is 1888; a rebel alliance with connections to the American government has succeeded in destabilizing Hawaii. When the fight comes to the royal palace, 13-year-old heir to the throne Princess Ka'iulani is spirited away to Victorian England -- where her royalty holds no bearing on her social standing.  As Princess Ka'iulani struggles to adapt to her new surroundings, she finds herself falling in love with handsome, rebellious young Englishman Clive Davies. Four years later, the princess receives word that the queen has been incarcerated, and the monarchy has fallen. In time Princess Ka'iulani realizes that in order to save her people she must give up her romance with Clive, and travel to America in order to speak with President Grover Cleveland. Convinced that she can restore her kingdom by proving to the Americans that her people are not the savage barbarians that the press portrays them to be, the princess makes her way to the United States and wages a valiant fight against the grave injustices being inflicted upon native Hawaiians.
Starring: Q'Orianka Kilcher, Barry Pepper, Shaun Evans,  Will Patton, Jimmy Yuill and Julian Glover

     In mid-January 1893, armed troops from the U.S.S. Boston landed at Honolulu in support of the coup d'etat against the constitutional sovereign of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Queen Lili'uokalani.  The event marked the culmination of a century of foreign intervention in the Hawaiian Islands and was described by U.S. President Grover Cleveland as "an act of war."
     This brilliant, well researched, award-winning documentary focuses on the history and events leading up to and surrounding the illegal overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1893.  Told by native Hawaiian historians with actual quotes from historic figures; the history is visualized by archival photographs, brilliant videography, artwork, and dramatic reenactments. Extremely poignant, informative, and accurate.  Highly recommended!  Public Broadcast Presentation in association with the Center for Hawaiian Studies University of Hawaii at Manoa.  See Hawaiian history through Hawaiian Eyes.   (58 minutes)
