The UH West Oʻahu ʻUluʻulu Henry Kuʻualoha Giugni Moving Image Archive of Hawaiʻi will screen the archival film “Black and White: The Early Years of Dan Inouye” at the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF) on Nov. 15.
The film features never-before-seen moving images of Senator Daniel Inouye during his early political career. Revealing, insightful, and historical, “Black and White: The Early Years of Dan Inouye” is a compilation of beautiful 16mm black and white films documenting an extraordinary time in Inouye’s career, including the first political television ads for then candidate Inouye when running for the U.S. House of Representatives. While the issues of the day were many, the film focuses on Hawaiʻi as a multicultural community that is an oddity to congressional members wrestling with civil rights legislation.
This special free screening happens Sunday, Nov. 15 at 4 p.m. at the Dole Cannery Theatre. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion presented by the ʻUluʻulu Henry Kuʻualoha Giugni Moving Image Archive of Hawaiʻi. Seating is first come, first-served. For more information, visit the Hawaii International Film Festival website.
“Black and White: The Early Years of Dan Inouye” is ʻUluʻulu’s third consecutive HIFF screening. The Achive screened “Puamana” in 2013 as well as “ʻIolani Palace: Hawaiʻi’s Past Today” and “ʻIolani Palace Restoration” in 2014.
