About this event

Waiwai Collective + KSG Films Present A Film Screening of Ala Moana Boys

Based on true events from 1930s Hawai’i, Ala Moana Boys tells the story of five young men who were wrongly arrested and framed for the rape of a U.S. Navy officer’s young, white wife. When evidence is presented in court that demonstrates there is no feasible way the accused could have committed the crime, the jury deadlocks, a mistrial is declared, and the boys are released. Shortly after, one of the boys is kidnapped by a group of racist vigilantes and violently beaten. The best friends gather in the victim’s home and try to figure out how to keep themselves and their families safe. But can they do anything against deeply ingrained prejudice?
