    KALAUPAPA HEAVEN

    Directed by Paul Cox 2007 90 min
    Details
    20 minutes by plane from modern Honolulu, lies a tiny settlement forgotten by time. Kalaupapa, a peninsula on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, with its swaying palms, unspoiled beaches and stunning mountains, is a paradise on earth - but with a dark and dramatic history. Kalaupapa is a leprosy colony.

    Paul Cox, described by Roger Ebert as “one of the best director’s of our time” told the story of the heroic Jesuit priest, Father Damien, who fought for the rights of those banished to Kalaupapa in the dramatic biopic - “Molokai, The story of Father Damien” (1998). Becoming life long friend with many of the patients, Paul was invited back in 2006 to make a documentary on their lives – a story that had never been told in total. KALAUPAPA HEAVEN is an up lifting and profoundly moving portrait of a group of people who through adversity have found forgiveness and faith by creating their own bit of paradise.
