LOOKING PAST PARADISE is a showcase that allows us the privilege of seeing how the filmmaking community in Hawai’i has leveraged increased accessibility from digital democratization. From the movement to protect Mauna Kea to a brief reunion between a formerly incarcerated father and his son, these films shatter the veneer of tourism and reveal the truths that affect the Nation of Hawai’i.

Co-presented by U.T.O.P.I.A. Seattle and Hawaiian International Film Festival

Q&A moderated by Kalei'okalani Matsui with ʻĀina Paikai (director, Hawaiian Soul), Ciara Lacy (director, This is the Way We Rise), Erin Lau (director, The Moon and the Night), and Jalena Keane-Lee (director, Standing Above the Clouds).
