HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I—The annual Filipino Film Festival moves to June this year to line up with Philippines Independence Day. The festival—now in its tenth year—includes stories that address the political and social issues of our time. Special thanks to festival supporting sponsor Consuelo Foundation, hospitality sponsor Aqua-Aston Hospitality, and media sponsor The FilAm Courier.

Across the Crescent Moon—a romance featuring the Philippines’ often-overlooked Muslim community—making it the perfect film to transition from the Seventh Art Stand film series held at the museum late May/early June. The screening follows the opening reception June 9, which includes Filipino cuisine served by the Museum Café, and live entertainment. Film director Baby Nebrida will be in attendance, and will lead a post-screening discussion that will include Skype-in appearances by actor Mateo Guidicelli, and former president of the Philippines Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

Local filmmaker Maribel Apuya directed The Sakada Seriesthree short films that tell the stories of immigrant and second-generation Filipino-Americans who worked in Hawai‘i’s sugar and pineapple plantations. “The Sakada Series captures intrinsic Filipino values I deeply care about and grew up with—perseverance, strong work ethics, respect for people, family, and celebrating culture through our dances and festivals—all through the lens of Hawai‘i plantation labor and history,” says Apuya. “It is something I felt could access personally as an immigrant, and because my grandfather worked in the sugar plantations. The film is meant to educate and celebrate Filipino culture and history, and I'm really excited because the Filipino Film Festival is the perfect place for it.”

Director Marlon Rivera bites the hand that feeds him with a pair of movies lampooning Filipino cinema. First, The Woman in the Septic Tank takes aim at indie filmmakers who seem to have an obsession with “poverty porn,” and then The Woman in the Septic Tank 2: #ForeverIsNotEnough goes after the mainstream industry’s tendency to make formulaic romantic comedies.

In the lead up to Philippines Independence Day (June 12), the theater screens Lav Diaz’s eight-hour epic 2016 film The Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery. The film blends fact and mythology as it weaves together narratives against the backdrop of the 1896 Philippine Revolution. Complimentary food and beverages are available throughout the screening.

3000 Nights
Directed by Mai Masri. Palestine/France/Jordan/Lebanon/Qatar/United Arab Emirates. 2015. 103 mins. Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles.
Thursday, June 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Documentarian Mai Masri's first narrative feature tells the inspiring based-on-a-true story of a Palestinian schoolteacher finding hope and strength against all odds while serving long prison sentences. After she is falsely convicted for terrorist collaboration in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, teacher Layla (Maisa Abd Elhadi) must serve a sentence that lasts 3,000 nights. During her time in prison, Layla discovers she is pregnant, and gives birth to the child despite the prison director's insistence on an abortion. She raises her child in captivity—think Palestinian Room. Masri's film is a timely reminder of the injustices faced by Palestinian people—and women, in particular—living under the occupation. But more than anything, it's an affecting human story of motherhood, sisterhood, and solidarity. Despite Layla's dire circumstances, 3000 Nights offers a powerful portrait of human resilience.

The story revolves around a Special Action Forces exemplary agent Abbas Misani (Matteo Guidicelli), who is a devout Muslim, and his wife Emma (Alex Godinez), whose strict Christian parents won’t accept Abbas to the family. While the film highlights the struggles of inter-faith relationships, it also reveals the menace of human trafficking. Though the action-drama story is a work of fiction, the stories depicted are inspired by true-to-life encounters of modern day slavery.

The Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery (Hele sa Hiwagang Hapis)
Directed by Lav Diaz. Philippines. 2016. 485 mins. Tagalog with English subtitles.
Saturday, June 10 from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Celebrate Philippine Independence Day with Lav Diaz’s ambitious eight-hour historical drama about the bloody 1896 Philippine Revolution. In his masterwork, Lav Diaz portrays the revolution’s interconnected narratives. Audiences can immerse themselves in the stories that inform the Filipino psyche: the story of the ballad “Jocelynang Baliwag,” the hymn of the revolution; Gregoria de Jesus’ forlorn search for the body of the “Father of the Philippine Revolution” Andres Bonifacio; the journey of the fictional national heroes Simon and Isagani; the role of the Philippine mythical hero Bernardo Carpio and the half-man, half-horse Tikbalang/Engkanto. Shot in black-and-white, the film marries mythology, fact, and a vibrant sense of history.

Complimentary food and beverages is available throughout the film.

The Woman in the Septic Tank (Ang Babae sa Septic Tank)
Directed by Marlon Rivera. With Eugene Domingo, Kean Cipriano, JM de Guzman, Cai Cortez. Philippines. 2012. 92 mins. Tagalog and English with subtitles.
Sunday, June 11 at 1 p.m.
In this hilarious, genre-bending box-office hit, a three-person indie filmmaking team—all middle-class, English-speaking, young, and ambitious—has grand plans to make it big in the film world. The trio has just the right story to satisfy the appetite of the global film elites: a desperate mother of seven kids in an urban slum who has no choice but to pimp out one of her offspring—initially a girl, but later switched to a boy for sure-win dramatic effect. On top of exploiting the “poverty porn” formula, the filmmakers experiment with every possible stylistic cliché, from heart-wrenching docudrama to campy musical, to maximize the emotional response. This witty comedy proves that Filipino filmmakers are not afraid to poke fun at themselves.

The Woman in the Septic Tank 2 (Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2): # Forever is Not Enough
Directed by Marlon Rivera. With Eugene Domingo, Kean Cipriano, JM de Guzman, Cai Cortez. Philippines. 2016. 92 mins. Tagalog and English with subtitles.
Sunday, June 11 at 4 p.m.
Tuesday, June 13 at 1 p.m.
Wednesday, June 14 at 1 p.m. + 7:30 p.m.
While the original was a satire focused on the Philippine indie film industry’s obsession with “poverty porn” and the dishonesty of filmmakers participating in foreign festivals, this sequel satirizes the mainstream film industry, particularly filmmakers’ fixation on making formulaic romantic comedies. The film stars aging celebrity actor Eugene Domingo, who prepares to make her comeback film titled The Itinerary, written and directed by filmmaker Rainier de la Cuesta (Kean Cipriano). In the film within the film, Eugene's absurd suggestions and recommendations change Rainier's script. What begins as a realistic portrayal of love and marriage turns into a mainstream rom-com.

25 April
Directed by Leanne Pooley. 2015. Australia. 85 mins.
Sunday, June 18 at 4 p.m.
The tragic 1915 Gallipoli campaign, in which thousands of Australian and New Zealand regiments were needlessly slaughtered, inspired one of the great war films—Gallipoli, which launched Mel Gibson as a star. Now Leanne Pooley tells the animated story of the debacle through six real-life New Zealanders—using their words from diaries, letters, and memoirs.

The graphic novel-like animation brings World War I experiences out of the usual black-and-white archive pictures and into vibrant, dynamic color.

During World War I, Turkey was a German ally. Hoping to knock Turkey out of the war, the British launched an invasion at the Gallipoli Peninsula. As part of the British Empire, colonial troops from Australia and New Zealand fought in this campaign. They became known as ANZACs. Gallipoli was to be a defining event in the history of these two nations. 25 April tells the story of the New Zealand’s involvement in this flawed and brutal campaign.

I, Daniel Blake
Directed by Ken Loach. USA. 2016. 100 mins.
Sunday, June 18 at 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday, June 20 at 1 p.m. + 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, June 21 at 1 p.m. + 7:30 p.m.
Ken Loach is 80, and at the top of his social realist game—I, Daniel Blake took the top 2016 Cannes prize (his second one). He quietly raises an everyday story about a working-class hero to art. A 59-year-old carpenter—Daniel Blake—recovering from a heart attack befriends Katie, a single mother of two, as they navigate their way through the impersonal, Kafkaesque benefits system. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-room homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in a no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of “striver and skiver” in modern-day Britain. Set in a bleak Newcastle, the New York Times’ Stephen Holden writes, “Its performances are so fine-tuned that you often feel you are watching a Frederick Wiseman documentary.” When the film premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the audience gave it a 15-minute standing ovation.

Directed by Nacho Vigalondo. Starring Anne Hathaway. 2017. USA. 110 mins.
Thursday, June 22 at 1 p.m.
Friday, June 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, June 24 at 1 p.m. + 4 p.m.
Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who finds herself in relationship trouble with her sensible boyfriend Tim (Dan Stevens), and is forced to move back to her tiny hometown to get her life back on track. She reconnects with childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), a good-natured bar owner with a coterie of drinking buddies (Tim Blake Nelson and Austin Stowell), and resumes her drinking lifestyle. But in a genre-twisting move, Colossal also features a larger-than-life creature attacking Seoul, South Korea, on a nightly basis, captivating spectators around the world. One night, Gloria is horrified to discover that her every move at a local playground is being mimicked on a catastrophic scale by the rampaging beast. When Gloria's friends get wind of the bizarre phenomenon, a second, more destructive creature emerges, prompting an epic showdown between the two monsters.

Deconstructing the monster movie genre in wildly imaginative ways, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo unleashes a fantastical tale that also triumphs as a wholly original and subversive romantic comedy. Featuring an empowering central performance by Anne Hathaway, Colossal is that rare beast, the story of a woman battling for her survival and taking control of her own life in the shadow of two very different monsters on either side of the world.

Front man David Byrne first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison, and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band's hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit.

Enjoy the newly restored release of this landmark concert film. Featuring performances by popular artists of the 1960s, this concert film highlights the music of the 1967 California festival. On a beautiful June weekend in 1967, at the height of the Summer of Love, the first and only Monterey International Pop Festival roared forward, capturing a decade’s spirit and ushering in a new era of rock and roll. Monterey would launch the careers of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding, but they were just a few among a wildly diverse cast that included Simon and Garfunkel, the Mamas and the Papas, The Who, The Byrds, Hugh Masekela, and the extraordinary Ravi Shankar. With his characteristic vérité style, D. A. Pennebaker captured it all, immortalizing moments that have become legend: Pete Townshend smashing his guitar, Jimi Hendrix burning his.
