A program of films by the Armed with a Camera (AWC) Fellowship for Emerging Media Artists class of 2023. This year’s cohort is comprised of filmmakers of Pasifika descent who have produced 6 heartfelt pieces from the diaspora. From a kitchen in Utah to the ‘āina of Hawai’i, the ties that bind them together as children of the moana are ancestral connection, family and a little food for the soul.
