THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Kuleana at 7pm
95 Minutes / English / Drama/ United States
Directed by: Brian Kohne
Starring: Stefan Schaefer, Kristina Anapau, Sonya Balmores, Vene Chun, Branscombe Richmond
KULEANA is the Hawaiian word for spiritual responsibility. In 1971, few understood the concept of kuleana, as the Hawaiian Renaissance, a reawakening of island culture, had yet to begin and ancient customs and values teetered on the precipice of extinction.
On Maui, childhood friends Nohea and Kim share a common nemesis: Kim's father, Victor Coyle, a real-estate developer who blatantly exploits the land and the people he has managed to usurp and control. Ancestral spirits and modern day warriors also contribute to the fight as Nohea and Kim learn the most important lesson: kuleana is not a burden; it is a privilege.


ABUNDANT LAND
Monday and Tuesday, November 20 & 21 at 7PM
Not Rated, 62 Minutes, Documentary
Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each showing. Tickets are $8 General and $7 for Seniors & Students.
Starring: Malia Akutagawa, Walter Ritte, Mercy Ritte
Directed by: Natasha Florentino

ABUNDANT LAND is a documentary about a Hawaiian community on Moloka'i opposing the biotech industry's use of the island to test genetically engineered seeds. Agrochemical biotech corporations, including Monsanto and Mycogen Seeds, are depleting Moloka'i's topsoil and fresh water while contributing to dust storms that spread pesticides into the ocean and surrounding communities. ABUNDANT LAND also offers a historical look at the intrusion and political underpinnings of chemical-intensive farming in Hawai'i while portraying the rich legacy of traditional Hawaiian land management and farming self-sufficiency.
There will be a Q & A discussion with Director Natasha Florentino following each screening! Eric Drake Weinert Jr., the President of the East Hawaii Chapter of the Hawai'i Farmers Union United, will join Natasha for the discussion on Monday, November 20!! 
PLUS ~ Front Yard Food will have an informational table set up in our lobby!
