Pidgin is a language all its own. Director and producer Marlene Booth sparks dialogue with her film Pidgin: The Voice of Hawai‘i where she profiles the language of Hawaii’s working people. She follows its rise from plantation jargon to a source of island identity, pride and controversy. Pidgin reflects the heart and soul of multi-ethnic Hawaii. The big question now is whether pidgin will survive. Booth will answer questions following the screening. $10. 3pm. Maui Arts and Cultural Center, McCoy Studio Theater (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 808-242-7469, Mauiarts.org
