Native Hawaiian filmmaker Anne Keala Kelly will introduce and discuss her documentary "Noho Hewa: the wrongful occupation of Hawai'i" (2013) - a powerful portrayal of the multiple links between militarisation and the historical and ongoing processes of colonisation. This screening is presented by Peace Movement Aotearoa, who are bringing Ms Kelly to Aotearoa especially for this event.

Author, poet, scholar and painter Albert Wendt described "Noho Hewa" as: "a brilliant, incisive, and complex expose of colonialism (American and other) and its devastating effects on Kanaka Maoli, the indigenous people of Hawaii, and their land."

"Through 'Noho Hewa,' Kelly has carefully illustrated how the militarisation of Hawai’i both produces and is enabled by broader processes of land alienation, indigenous social dislocation, and late capitalism." - Review by Dr Teresia Teaiwa, Senior Lecturer, Va'aomanu Pasifika, Victoria University, author, and poet.
