"Moana" Screening and Discussion
Date and Time
Tuesday, March 21, 2023
11:45 am to 2:00 pm
This is an in-person event.
Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (2016).
Please join the Center for Inclusion and Belonging and the Film and Media Studies program for our inaugural screening and discussion of Moana (2016).
Moana is an adventurous teenager who, despite her father’s admonishments, wishes to leave her home island of Motunui and explore the open sea. In an act of rebellion, she sets out on a dangerous journey to save her island and its people from Te Kā, a fiery creature that has stolen the sacred heart of Te Fiti.
This intricately crafted coming-of-age story combines vivid animation with impassioned musical performances that evoke a range of emotions, while at the same time situating the spectator into Moana’s unique perspective as she explores and asserts her burgeoning identity.
