"A brilliant, incisive, and complex expose of colonialism (American and other) and its devastating effects on Kanaka Maoli, the indigenous people of Hawaii, and their land." - Author, poet, scholar and painter Albert Wendt

"Through 'Noho Hewa', Kelly has carefully illustrated how the militarisation of Hawai'i both produces and is enabled by broader processes of land alienation, indigenous social dislocation, and late capitalism." - Review by Dr Teresia Teaiwa, Senior Lecturer, Va'aomanu Pasifika, Victoria University, author, and poet

'Noho Hewa: The Wrongful Occupation of Hawai'i' is a documentary by Native Hawaiian journalist, writer, and filmmaker Anne Keala Kelly. The film was directed, shot, and edited by Ms Kelly, and took over six years to make as an independently funded project. The documentary features interviews with Native Hawaiian academics and activists and some extraordinary original footage documenting both the relentless expansion of the militarised occupation and the determined resistance of Native Hawaiians. Sound track music by Sudden Rush, Billy Bragg, Jon Osorio, Black Square, and Kamehameha Projects reinforces the emotional impact of Kelly's story, and demonstrates the beauty and power of social and political commentary through the arts.

Awards ~ Grand Festival Award for Documentary, Berkeley Video and Film Festival 2011 ~ Special Jury Prize, Pacific International Documentary Film Festival 2010 ~ Best Documentary Film, Hawaii International Film Festival 2008 (unfinished edition).
