Spring 2013 Faculty Lecture Series

February 21, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Manoa Campus, Hamilton Library Room 301 Add to Calendar

Lisette Flanary, Academy of Creative Media, presents the second Faculty Lecture for the Spring 2013 on Thursday, February 21st at 3: 30 pm in Hamilton Library, Room 301.

While there have been many films shot in and about Hawaiʻi, few have been stories that are told from the point of view of the “inside out” rather than the outside looking in. In her lecture, Hawaiʻi on Film: Storytelling on Screen Beyond Stereotypes, Flanary speaks about the diversity and individuality of indigenous films made in Hawaiʻi that challenge stereotypical understandings of Native Hawaiians and are important tools for cultural expression. Through her documentary films about hula and Hawaiian culture, filmmaker Lisette Marie Flanary offers windows into our community, culture, beliefs, traditions and history with emphasis on issues of representation, protocols, and cultural integrity for a global audience.

Her films American Aloha: Hula Beyond Hawaiʻi, Nā Kamalei: The Men of Hula, ONE VOICE, and her current film project entitled Tokyo Hula will be used to illustrate contemporary storytelling in Hawaiʻi.

As an independent filmmaker and a hula dancer, Lisette Marie Flanary creates documentary films that celebrate a modern renaissance of the hula dance and Hawaiian culture. She is the writer, producer and director of Lehua Films and her award-winning documentaries, “AMERICAN ALOHA: Hula Beyond Hawai’i”, “Nā Kamalei: The Men of Hula”, and “ONE VOICE” have broadcast nationally on public television and shown in film festivals around the world. Lisette is currently directing and producing a documentary entitled “Tokyo Hula” which explores the explosive popularity of hula in Japan. She is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in Film and Television Production and received her MFA in Creative Writing at the New School University.

Having lived in New York City for over twenty years, Lisette recently joined the faculty at the University of Hawai’i as the Assistant Professor of Indigenous/Native Creative Media at the Academy for Creative Media in the fall of 2011.
