This weekend there is a film festival being sponsered by the Hawaiian Cultural Foundation of New York that features the films centering around Hawaii and Hawaiian culture.
Of special interest to y'all could be 2 movies, "Velvet Dream" which is a docu-drama that is revolving around the elusive beauty if a south seas maiden as depicted in a black velvet painting. There is also a film called "Skin Stories" which traces the origins of tattoos. There are many other films involving hula, music, surf, the hawaiian language and history.
Please visit this site, it gives the schedule and contact info, I am sure tickets for most will be availiable at the door.
Join us if you can. Mahalo!
