Pacific Film Series with Oceania Rising: LIVING ALONG THE FENCELINE

Mānoa Campus, Richardson School of Law Classroom 3 Add to Calendar

In solidarity with Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Pacific Film Series and Oceania Rising present Living Along the Fenceline. This documentary tells the stories of seven women whose lives have been affected by the US military presence in their backyards. Their individual journeys of strength and courage represent the unheard stories of myriad communities across the globe that live alongside US bases and bear tragic hidden costs to their land, culture, and spirit. The film connects the stories of women from Texas, Puerto Rico, Hawaiʻi, Guam, the Philippines, Korea, and Okinawa and their efforts to create genuine security in their home communities. They expose the tragic hidden costs to life, health, culture, and the environment and demonstrate the strength and creativity of women’s activism in challenging prevailing assumptions about military security.
"After seeing this film, 'security' will take on new meanings, and the world map will never look the same." — Cynthia Enloe, Research Professor, Clark University and author of Nimo's War, Emma's War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War.
Panel discussion to follow.
