Stream Independent Documentary Films from Docuseek until April 21

 

Docuseek, a video streaming platform for independent documentaries focusing on social and environmental issues, is available for trial access through April 21, 2022.

URL for on and off-campus access: https://lccproxy.lib.hawaii.edu/login?url=https://docuseek2.com/leeward

Leeward CC students, faculty, and staff can stream over 2,100 titles from distributors including Bullfrog Films, Collective Eye Films, Film Movement, GOOD DOCS, and Icarus Films. The majority of Docuseek titles are exclusive to this platform. Docuseek titles are not duplicated in the library’s Academic Video Online (AVON), Feature Films for Education, or Kanopy collections.

The Docuseek collections available during this limited-time trial include the Docuseek Complete Collection 3rd Edition, the Global Environmental Justice Documentaries, and the GOOD DOCS Complete Collection. The wide array of subjects means there will be something for everyone.

We welcome your feedback. Please submit our brief survey if you want us to add Docuseek to the library’s existing streaming video collections.

Newly available digital resource: “Noho Hewa- The Wrongful Occupation of Hawaiʻi”

February 11, 2022 by aapaikai | 0 comments

 

The 2009 documentary film “Noho Hewa- The Wrongful Occupation of Hawaiʻi” is now available to watch digitally for Leeward affiliated students, faculty, and staff!

 

The film received the 2008  Hawaiʻi International Film Festival’s “Best Documentary Film” award, which was presented to filmmaker Anne Keala Kelly. It is hailed as a bold demonstration of the strained relationship between Native Hawaiian communities and the oppressive entities that occupy Hawaiʻi. The film contains interviews with renowned scholars including the late Haunani-Kay Trask, Noenoe Silva, Kaleikoa Kaʻeo, Jonathan Osorio, Ty Kāwika Tengan, and J. Kēhaulani Kauanui.  For more information on the film please visit:  https://nohohewa.com/

 

The film can be found on the digital media platform Academic Video Online (AVON) which can be found via the Leeward Library‘s A-Z database list. We also carry the DVD hard copy version of the film which can be borrowed by any UH affiliated student, faculty or staff member.

 

If you are interested in incorporating the digital version of “Noho Hewa” into your courses, you can use the direct link or embed it straight into your Laulima course site. Both the link and the embed code can be found by clicking “share” along the top of your screen when you access the film in AVON. The direct link can be found below:

 

 

Helpful tips:

 

  • If you are having trouble linking library database materials please visit our “Linking to Articles, E-books, and Videos” library guide.
  • Digital access rights for this film are only for Leeward affiliated users. To view the film off campus you and your students will need to use your UH username and password to access it.

Lastly, if you would like to suggest other Hawaiʻi or Pacific related resources to add to our library Hawaiʻi-Pacific Collection, please contact Annemarie Paikai at aapaikai@hawaii.edu
