HONOLULU, Hawaii (July 23, 1997 - PIDP/CPIS)---The Fourth Annual "Pacific Island Images" Film Festival, showcasing the work of indigenous filmmakers from throughout the Pacific Islands region, opens today on the Hawaiian island of Maui, and will continue at ten different venues throughout the state for the next seven days.

Highlighting this year's festival will be documentaries from Hawaii and New Zealand, a showcase of works by what festival officials call "the next wave of Pacific Islander filmmakers," and the world premiere of "Hawaiian Sting."

An irreverent comedy, "Hawaiian Sting" tells the story of a local-style Hawaiian philosopher who ponders the true meaning of flies and roaches. The screen play was written by Big Island high school student Anthony Kahawaii and stars comedian Andy Bumatai. "Hawaiian Sting" features the music of Hawaii musicians Brother Nolan, Sonny Kamahele, Jr., and Ken Makuakane."
