Written and directed by HRFF Festival Director Brent Anbe. Hawaii's first Kim Chee comedy is a zany comedy that follows the misadventures of three Korean drama fanatics.
Hawaii has the highest rate of homelessness in the nation, and for LGBT youth the problem is especially acute. Kamaʻāina is the story of a queer 16 year old girl from Waiʻanae who must navigate life on the streets after being kicked out of her home, until she eventually finds refuge at the Puʻuhonua o Waiʻanae – Hawaii’s largest organized homeless encampment.We will premiere the film on the HRFF website, then convene a virtual talk story session including the filmmaker, the young Waiʻanae actress who plays the main role, and Twinkle, leader of the Puʻuhonua. This will be followed by breakout sessions to facilitate in-depth conversation on this issue, the COVID-19 pandemic, and how to move forward.
Sponsored by the Hawaii Council for the Humanities.
