WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In 1996, a young Eliza Bent and a friend created, directed, and starred in an amateur historical film for a school project. In it, Bent portrayed Hawaii's last reigning monarch, Queen Liliuokalani. Now, 22 years later, Bent's home movie has become a starting point from which audiences are led on a journey that grapples with personal history, legacy, and cultural appropriation. In the tradition of Spaulding Gray, Fran Leibowitz, and David Sedaris, Bent's humorous, cringe-inducing stories chart a young Bostonian's education in race and appropriation.
