Film Screening to Discuss Meaning of Hawaiian Flag
“Hae Hawaiʻi,” a historical drama set during the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, is scheduled to screen at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center next month.
The film follows the journey of a young thief who is recruited to protect the hae Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian flag), the unifying symbol of the kingdom, days before the annexation.
Director Ty Sanga and cultural specialist Lāiana Kanoa-Wong will host a post-film discussion addressing the significance of the hae Hawaiʻi during the overthrow and what it means today.
The event will be held on Nov. 17 at 3 p.m. in the MACCʻs McCoy Studio Theatre.
