"The Massie Affair" (2005) hosted by Dr. Serena Hashimoto.


The year 1931 saw a controversial gang-rape trial in the United States, but the Scottsboro case was not the only such trial; on the island of Hawai‘i, a group of locals were accused of the rape of the wife of an American naval officer.  "The Massie Affair" is a documentary that examines the facts behind this series of crimes, and explores the tragic legacy it has left on the people of Hawai‘i.


Join Dr. Hashimoto for pizza and a movie.  Share viewpoints with her on images of Hawai‘i.
