Aotearoa New Zealand Film Showcase 2020

December 18–19, 2020

See films from our neighbors in Aotearoa that expand the Pacific narrative from wherever you are—free and virtually. This year’s showcase features the documentary Marks of Mana, an exploration of stories of tatau for women in the Pacific, and a collection of short films from the recent Wairoa Māori Film Festival.

Each film will be available to view from their start times through Sunday December 20 at 11pm. All times listed are in Hawaii Standard Time (UTC -10:00).

Special thanks to Misa Tupou, Louisa Tei, Leo Koziol, and Tolua Samifua.
