“The forces that bond the expansive cultures of Oceania are stories of strength, ingenuity and resilience. This program features films from Hawaii, Saipan, Tinian, and Guam, bringing us from the end of the 19th century and into the contemporary with stories that range from personal trials to revolutionary acts of poetics and survival. – Micki Davis”
