Weekly Update 4/8
Dear Members and Friends of JASH,
From April 15-25, the Hawaiʻi International Film Festival presents their Indigenous Lens Showcase Series through their on-demand video streaming platform. Powered by Pacific Islanders in Communications (PIC), this series expands on HIFF’s mission to be the festival of record of Indigenous, Aboriginal and First Peoples from the Pacific and the Americas. Indigenous Lens features the latest works from Kanaka Maoli, as well as media artists from New Zealand, Australia and greater Polynesia and Oceania. The Indigenous Lens lineup features award winning festival favorites, and fresh new titles of 2021.
Exclusive for JASH Members, receive $2 off the non-member price for a single film by entering code JASH at checkout. JASH is proud to be a Festival Partner for the 2021 Hawaiʻi International Film Festival.
We are excited for all the Indigenous Lens movies, but this week we’d like to feature the 2010 HIFF Audience Award Winner film “One Voice” by director Lisette Marie Flanary. “One Voice” follows student song directors through their preparations and final performance for the 2008 Kamehameha Schools Song Contest. The audience shares in the students’ highs and lows as they compete in a uniquely Hawaiian experience “that builds class unity, instills cultural pride, and builds character” (PIC). “One Voice” resonates with our passion at JASH for our educational programs that provide local students opportunities to learn more about their heritage through Japanese language and culture-focused activities.
