Fine Arts Department Sponsors Film Showcase
Students and members of the public enjoyed two recent examples of regional filmmaking at its finest when the American Samoa segment of the “Deep Waters” Pacific Film Showcase took place on Thursday, October 13th, in the ASCC Lecture Hall. This free event, sponsored by the Fine Arts Department, featured two documentaries, “Sons of Halawa,” which looks at the challenges of carrying on cultural traditions in Molokai’s Halawa Valley, and “The Roots of ‘Ulu,” which traces the ‘ulu (breadfruit) from its arrival in Hawaii with the first Polynesian settlers to its present day uses for food sustainability and cultural preservation.
