Windward Women's History Month: The Land Has Eyes FilmMarch 22, 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Windward Campus, Hale Akoakoa 105
"The Land Has Eyes." Vilsoni Hereniko, Professor at Center for Pacific Island Studies at University of Hawaii, as well as the writer/director/co-producer of The Land Has Eyes, will lead a discussion after the viewing of this film.
The Land has Eyes is the remarkable story of a young girl, Viki. Shamed by her village for being poor and the daughter of a convicted thief, Viki is inspired and haunted by the Warrior Woman from her island's mythology. The lush tropical beauty of Rotuma, Fiji contrasts with the stifling conformity of island culture as Viki fights for justice and her freedom.
