Janet Holman is a local film maker and screenwriter. She was invited to the Hawaii International Film Festival because she is known as a local film maker. She is currently producing the film “The Enlightenment”. This is the first film that she has produced and written. Janet says that she was guided by spirit to write and produce this film. It had always been her dream to write, when she was finally given the chance after being diagnosed with postpartum depression. Janet set out researching and writing a story about Captain Cook. Holman had many mentors in her quest to write the screen play and book about Captain Cook. “The Enlightenment and Captain James Cook: The Lono-cook-kirk-regenesis” (the book Holman wrote) is currently available at Borders in Kaneohe. The movie is just starting production and will hopefully be in theaters in 18-24 months from now.
I look forward to seeing Janet Holman’s movie when it arrives on the big screen!
