Heritage Film Festival: Pidgin: The Voice of Hawai'i
Maui Arts and Cultural Center's McCoy Theater, One Cameron Way, Kahului, Maui; 3:00pm
Pidgin: The Voice of Hawai‘i profiles the language of Hawai‘i’s working people in its rise from plantation jargon to a source of island identity, pride and controversy. Born on sugar plantations and spoken by more than half of Hawai‘i’s population, Pidgin captures the heart and soul of multi-ethnic Hawai‘i. Once again under attack by educators and bloggers, will Pidgin survive? A Q&A session with producer and director, Marlene Booth, will follow the screening.
