Moderator: Melody Kapilialoha MacKenzie, Associate Professor of Law “On August 21, 1959, Hawai’i became the 50th and last state to join the United States of America. Narrated by Jason Scott Lee, this insightful documentary explores how American imperialism, Asian immigration, World War II, and other cultural, economic and political factors led to Hawaiian statehood. This film takes an extraordinary look at both the positive and negative impacts that statehood brought to Hawai‘i and its citizens.” — Sang Chi, SFIAAFF An UHM Arts & Minds Event
