article imageFilm to Be Made in Hawaii of Obama's Birth

By Carol Forsloff     Mar 7, 2009 in Lifestyle
Perhaps a film made in Hawaii will put the idea to rest that Obama was not born in the United States. For some skeptics showing a birth certificate might not have been enough. Now some University students are about to produce a film about Obama's birth.
These University of Hawaii students will use a cast of local people for the story that takes place at Kapiolani Medical Center, the place where it is conjectured Obama was born. The story will relate how nurses and staff would feel if they knew that the child born there was going to grow up to be President of the United States. It focuses on one nurse in particular passed over for promotion and the baby that is born, with the impact that the event eventually had. The students are advertising for a cast and crew to sign up for this film.
In the meantime Republican Governor Linda Lingle continues to refuse to allow anyone to see the original birth certificate of President Barack Obama, although a copy of it was photographed for the press. She maintains solidly the legal description from her office, “the spouse or parent of the registrant, a descendant of the registrant, a person having a common ancestor with the registrant, a legal guardian of the registrant, or a person or agency acting on behalf of the registrant. “ Like others in Hawaii she finds the questions regarding the authenticity of the birth certificate to be ridiculous. As a Republican she still would not circumvent the law to provide continuing evidence to naysayers who weren't quieted by the evidence that had been provided that others believed sufficient.
A detailed series on Obama's life was carried by the Honolulu Advertiser during the Presidential campaign, beginning with the relationship of Barack Obama Sr., the President's father, and his mother Ann Durham, now deceased. It quotes Neil Abercrombie who knew both the President's parents and relates how Barack Jr. was born in Honolulu. Other information specific to Obama's life can be found in any one of his biographical books, but the best source of information on his early life can be found among those who knew him best: the people of Hawaii and the announcement of his birth from Vital Statistics included in the Honolulu Advertiser.
The author lived 28 years in Hawaii, is acquainted with people who knew Ann and her son. The hospital named for the film is likely where he was born as it is located in Makiki, near the University on Punahou Street in Honolulu near where the grandparents lived and where Barack Obama, the current President, attended School at Punahou, one of Honolulu's finest.
