Aloha Hawai’i

Posted on February 19, 2012 by Mike Riddell

 

Great news that The Insatiable Moon will be opening the Aotearoa-New Zealand film festival on Saturday 10 March in Honolulu. As part of the opening celebrations, there will be food and wine accompanied by a Maori dance performance from Te Kohao Hawaiiki. This will run from 6.00 –  7.30pm, after which the Hawaiian premiere of The Insatiable Moon will screen.

The festival, which also features screenings of Boy, The Strength of Water, and Matariki, is to celebrate filmmaking and the indigenous culture of Aotearoa-New Zealand. The team here at Moon is proud to be selected to open this festival, and particularly to be screening alongside Matariki, which shares a number of connections – not the least being the participation of Sara Wiseman in both films.

We have always believed that The Insatiable Moon is a story capable of opening up dialogue and discussion in a wide variety of cultural contexts, and are very happy that the Doris Duke Theatre in Honolulu (part of the Honolulu Academy of Arts) is providing the opportunity for this to happen. If you have friends in Hawaii, please let then know of the opening night celebrations, and also the screening times of the other films in the festival.
