Press Release Header

 

HONOLULU, HI – A father-daughter relationship of the “tough love” kind will be featured on HIKI NŌ, Thurs., Jan. 28 at 7:30 pm on PBS Hawaii.

 

Waianae High School students bring us the story of young wrestler Anuhea Hamilton and her challenging relationship with her father, Kimo Hamilton. Mr. Hamilton, a former wrestler himself, admits to pushing Anuhea hard so he can prepare his daughter for life after school. “It’s a cruel world out there,” he says.

However, Mr. Hamilton says: “There’s a difference between overbearing and old school. I’m old school.” In the end, father and daughter both come to the realization that their differences stem from a place of love and mutual respect.

 

Waipahu Intermediate School students host this episode, which will also feature these stories:

  • Students from Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School on Kauai tell the story of student Haley Gokan and her dog Harley, who has difficulty walking because of Canine Degenerative Myelopathy. Haley designed and built a wheelchair for Harley, giving him more mobility.

INDEPENDENT LENS
India’s Daughter

 

Learn how the harrowing rape and murder of a promising 23-year-old female medical student in Delhi sparked an international movement for change in this news-making film that was banned in India.

 

POV
The Storm Makers

 

Featuring brutally candid testimony, this film is a chilling exposé of Cambodia’s human trafficking underworld and an eye-opening look at the complex cycle of poverty, despair and greed that fuels this brutal modern slave trade. More than half a million Cambodians work abroad and a staggering third of these have been sold as slaves. Most are young women, held prisoner and forced to work in horrific conditions, sometimes as prostitutes, in Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan.

 

The story is told from the perspectives of a former slave whose return home is greeted with bitterness and scorn by her mother; a successful trafficker – known in Cambodia as a “storm maker” for the havoc he and his cohorts wreak – who works with local recruiters to funnel a steady stream of poor and illiterate young people across borders; and a mother who has sold to the recruiter not only local girls, but also her own daughter.
