E Haku Inoa: To Weave a Name
Thursday, February 5, 9:00 pm
A young multi-racial kanaka maoli (native Hawaiian) woman, filmmaker Christen
Hepuakoa Marquez, sets out to discover the meaning of her incredibly lengthy
Hawaiian name from her estranged mother, whose diagnosis as schizophrenic in
the 80s caused their family separation. Christen not only discovers herself
within the name, but gains a whole new perspective on the idea of sanity and
how cultural differences can sometimes muddle its definition.
