Hawaiian Soul
Hawaiian Soul is the story of George Helm, a talented Hawaiian musician and leader in the 1970's native rights movement, who used his voice to inspire a revolution of consciousness. This short-film shares moments of George's journey into music and activism from childhood to his adult life, right up to the precipice of his leap into protecting Kahoʻolawe, an island used for target bombing practice by the US Navy that eventually put a stop to. This is an origin story of our Hawaiian hero.
Koa Talking To Me
This National Park Service film follows a Hawaiian man's love for one of the rarest and most threatened trees in the world. Junior's connection with koa trees on his native island compels him to conserve and honor the spirt of fallen trees that would normally be wasted. His way of using the trees connects him to one of the oldest Hawaiian traditions.
Beyond the Mauna
For thousands of years, Hawaiians have told stories of the sacred mountain Mauna Kea, the birthplace of the gods. Now, Mauna Kea finds itself at the center of an unfolding controversy. The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) was going to be built on the mountain, its proponents arguing that the summit is one of the best places in the world to see the stars. However, activists set up camp in the road to prevent its construction, arguing that they had to protect their heritage. The clock is ticking and the stalemate can't last forever. But two women, one on each side, feel that they are doing what they must do.
Pua Ka Uahi
Pua ka uahi is a wonder-filled Indigenous animation following Pele, a hot tempered fire goddess, who has been challenged by the shapeshifting trickster Kamapuaʻa in a race from Puna to Hilo. Pele traverses through the land and helps a few friends along the way. Will she win, or will she enjoy the journey even if it means losing the race?
