Pacific Film Series presents Miss South Pacific: Beauty and the Sea (Fiji) 2011

May 3, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Tokioka Room, Moore 319

What does a beauty pageant in Suva, Fiji have to do with climate change? Quite a lot, as it turns out. 'Miss South Pacific: Beauty and the Sea' is a short documentary film about the 2009-2010 Miss South Pacific Pageant that brought contestants, or Queens, from all the major Pacific Island Nations to compete in a week long pageant for the crown of Miss South Pacific. Addressing the theme of Climate Change and its impact on Pacific Island countries, the Queens eloquently and passionately implore judges, spectators, and the world at large to reduce global carbon emission lest their island homes will be lost to rising seas. This is the final Pacific film for the semester, please join us for a great film and light refreshments.
