November Events

Weekly + Recurring Events

Mondays | November 1, 8, 15, 22 + 29

Monday Movie Cafe. A weekly showcase of the most current, and often hard-to-find
documentaries, Indie and art house films. All films start at 7:00pm. $10 at the door. For
more information contact Don Brown at 223.0130.

November 1: Yes Men Fix the World!
A hit at Sundance in 2009, this film begins with the Yes Men's famous 2004
impersonation of a Dow Chemical spokesperson on BBC World News, in which
they took responsibility for the largest industrial accident in history – the Bhopal
disaster. The film also shows the Yes Men posing as Exxon and Halliburton
representatives, presenting shocking and ridiculous solutions to climate change
to industry audiences. Besides covering their daring hoaxes, this film challenges
the blind worship of the free market that has led so many corporations and
government agencies to put profits before people.

November 8: Wayfinders: A Pacific Odyssey - A Tribute to Mau Piailug
As European influence grew in Hawaii, the art of “wayfinding” – navigating
without instruments – was nearly lost. This film documents the Hokulea and its
crew and Micronesian navigator Mau Piailug learning the lost art of sailing long
distances using only the signs of nature, such as the stars, the moon, the sun
and the ocean swells.

November 15: No-Impact Man
With Kokua Hawaii Foundation. Imagine going a year without TV, coffee, a
refrigerator and even toilet paper!
2 of 4
1146 Bethel Street, Honolulu, HI 96813 | 808.528.1144
Manhattan-ite Colin Beavan, wife Michele, their 2-year-old daughter, and even
their dog embarked on a yearlong crusade to drastically reduce their carbon
footprint. The result is “No Impact Man”, a breezy, funny and informative
chronicle of the family’s adventure.

November 22: Ghostbird
With the Sierra Club of Hawaii. This film follows the search and controversy
surrounding the elusive ivory-billed woodpecker, last observed in the 1930s and
widely believed to be extinct. Set in a small town in Arkansas, this film shows
why the best birders of the world are unable to locate even one bird even after
numerous observations and announced rediscovery. The woodpecker always
remains out of reach and the movie also throws light on the importance of hope,
faith and certainty during the quest.

November 29: Hookele Waa: Turning the Canoe
2010 Maui Film Festival Audience Award Winner. What does the future hold for
Maui? Is the continued depletion of Maui’s natural resources inevitable or do we
have an opportunity to change course? This film illuminates the importance of
protecting Maui’s resources and making Maui more sustainable. Includes
interviews from those leading the effort to protect Maui’s environment and neverbefore-
seen footage of some of Maui’s unique natural resources.
The Venue and Brasserie Du Vin are partnering to present a specially priced movie and

Closer. All the World’s a Stage Theatre Company presents the play Closer, by Patrick

favorite starring Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen.

closer together. “Not always so,” says Hannah Schauer Galli, All the World’s a Stage
Associate Artistic Director, who also plays Anna.
