Join HSPLS and Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities for a thought provoking film and conversation series with great films from Hawaiʻi and the Pacific. Films will be screened at the beginning of each session with a “Try Think” community conversation to follow. The featured short film for October is “Anointed”.
Film Description: The Republic of the Marshall Islands was once the testing site for some of the biggest nuclear weapons ever made by the United States. Today, the impacts of those tests are still felt by the people who call these islands home. Acclaimed Marshallese poet and activist, Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner, explores the nuclear testing legacy of her country through the legends and stories of one particular island that houses a dark secret.
