Women's Studies: Celebrating 40 Years
January 16, 12:00pm - 2:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Saunders Hall 637
Hawai'i Women in Film: The Present Kai Wahine tells the story of the women who participate in the: Na Wahine o Ke Kai Canoe Race. This is a grueling 41-mile outrigger canoe race across the Ka Iwi ocean channel, from the island of Molokaâ€˜i to Oâ€˜ahu.
While the story is told through the women of the Waimanalo Canoe Club, it also expands to paddlers from other canoe crews throughout Hawaiâ€˜i on topics such as: (1) why they paddle; (2) why it is important to them to cross the channel; and (3) why they make the sacrifices they do to participate in this incredible ocean experience.
Following film screening: Q&A Session with filmmaker, Anne-Marie Kirk.
Open and Free to the Public
