About Eliza Bent: Aloha, Aloha, or When I Was Queen

In 1996, a young Eliza Bent, along with 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. 22 years later, Bent uses her home movie as a jumping off point to lead audiences on a journey that grapples with personal history, legacy, and cultural appropriation. In the tradition of Spalding Gray, Fran Lebowitz, and David Sedaris, Bent’s humorous cringe-inducing stories chart a young Bostonian’s education in race and appropriation.

Written and Performed by Eliza Bent

Directed by Knud Adams
