With me, is Q’Orianka Kilcher, who stars in the Princess Ka’iulani movie to be released this year. (She also starred as Pocahontas in Terrence Malik’s, The New World, with Colin Ferrell.) Q’Orianka’s film is set in the same time period as my novel — the late 19th century during the time of the overthrow of the royal Hawaiians by American missionary descendants.
Here is an interview I did on Indie 103.1 in Los Angeles (rated by Rolling Stone Magazine as the best radio station in the country and hosted by the fabulous DJ, Trina Quinn — OK, she’s my daughter, but she’s still fabulous).
Neither I, nor to my knowledge, the filmmakers, had a plan for our creative efforts to see the light this year — the 50th anniversary of Hawaii’s statehood!
