HIFF 30: 2 Films, 2 Actresses from Okinawa


The Hawaii International Film Festival gets underway from October 14th to the 24th and we’re in for a treat as they’re screening two films that feature actresses from Okinawa.


Official Website

“Abacus and Sword (武士の家計簿 Bushi no Kakeibo)” (Japan, 2010) stars Yukie Nakama and will be shown on 10/23/10 at 8:45 PM and on 10/24/10 at 12:30 PM. (Visit HIFF’s page for the film for more info.)

“Hanamizuki (ハナミズキ)” (Japan, 2010) stars Yui Aragaki and will be shown on 10/23/10 at 1:00 PM and on 10/24/10 at 5:00 PM. (Visit HIFF’s page for the film for more info — they also have a trailer up on their website.) Check out the film’s official website which has several wallpapers for the film available for download (unfortunately, none feature Yui Aragaki). The song, “Hanamizuki,” which Yui covers from Yo Hitoto, is on Yui’s latest album “Niji,” released on 9/22/10.
