Lastly, "The Islands" is a faith-based historical film that's also set for a March release date. The picture is based on the true story of Hawaiian Queen Chiefess Kapiolani who came to faith in Jesus Christ over 200 years ago. Her conversion made such an impact that it brought Christianity to all of the Hawaiian Islands.
According to a press release shared with The Christian Post, her conversion and actions that followed were "considered the greatest act of moral courage by any world leader."
The Tim Chey film was shot entirely in Hawaii and features newcomer Teuria Shanti Napa as Chiefess, along with Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino and actor John Savage, both of whom play Boston missionaries who arrive in Hawaii in 1821. Many of the lead characters in the movie include Native Hawaiians and Polynesians.
