Pidgin: The Voice of Hawai'i with filmmaker Marlene Booth

June 6, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Manoa Campus, Krauss 12

Pidgin: The Voice of Hawai‘i profiles the language of Hawai’i’s working people in its rise from plantation jargon to a source of island identity, pride, and controversy. Born on sugar plantations and spoken by more than half of Hawai‘i’s population, Pidgin captures multi-ethnic Hawai‘i’s heart and soul. The film draws on a variety of sources, including archival, academic and other expert commentary, man-on-the-street interviews and performance to shed light on this colorful language.

Marlene Booth is an award-winning documentary filmmaker who teaches at the Academy for Creative Media, UHM. She worked for PBS station WGBH-TV in Boston and for her own company, Raphael Films. Her major films include Pidgin: the Voice of Hawai‘i which won the audience award for best documentary at the Hawai‘i International Film Festival; They Had a Dream: Brown v Board of Education 25 Years Later; and The Forward: From Immigrants to Americans.
