PCV Jack Niedenthal has created a new film set in the Marshall Islands that I think will entertain you.

Jack says,

“The professionally recorded and packaged DVD of my full length feature Marshallese film (with English subtitles) Ña Noniep (I am the Good Fairy) is now available online for $7.99, which includes shipping.”

I am going to order a copy and let you know what I think. I hope you will too - and tell us what you think in a comment. I have looked at the previews below. The film looks fine and the songs are lovely.

Jack recently sent me an email:

My name is Jack Niedenthal.  I live in the Marshall Islands.

I was a volunteer from 1981-84 who basically married a local woman and never went home.

My bio is here: http://www.bikiniatoll.com/host.html

I saw your article re film on the Peace Corps Worldwide web site.

I thought you would be interested to know that I just finished a feature
film in Marshallese, Ña Noniep (I am the Good Fairy), which I wrote,
directed, produced and edited.

Here is the web site: http://www.majurocooperativeschool.org/NaNoniep.html

Today is actually the last day of a very successful 2 week run in the local theaters here.

I have entered the film in 6 film festivals, 3 in LA, one in DC, one in Hawaii, and one in the UK.”

For Ña Noniep DVD online ordering go to this page: https://www.bikiniatoll.com/bikini/cart/RMI%20Movies.html

For information about the film and to hear the lovely songs go to: http://www.majurocooperativeschool.org/NaNoniep.html

Jack adds, “As this film shows scenes all over Majuro in the Marshall Islands, I am sure RCPVs from the Marshall Islands would love to see this movie.  We have kept the price low so that the islanders themselves an afford to buy it.  Proceeds go to the Majuro Cooperative School.

I have sent the film off to 8 film festivals, most of which I won’t hear from until this summer, but it has been accepted and will be screened at the Youth International Film Festival in the UK this August.

FYI here is the website for my new film company, Microwave Films of the Marshall Islands: http://www.microwavefilms.org/

Congratulations to Jack!
