The Kahilu Theatre will present Hawaiian Soul, a film screening and talk story with the filmmakers, on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. For tickets and more info, call (808) 885-6868 or visit https://kahilutheatre.org/.
Hawaiian Soul is based on the true story of George Helm, a young Hawaiian musician who must gain the support of kūpuna (community elders) from Maui to aid in the fight of protecting the neighboring island of Kahoʻolawe from military bombing. The film took home a pair of awards at the 2020 Hawaii International Film Festival. It is a beautifully crafted tribute to those who helped start the Native Hawaiian rights movement.
This narrative short film is a tribute to the legacy of a leader and artist who used his voice to inspire a revolution of consciousness. We hope to honor his message and music.
Following the screening of the 20-minute film, Kahilu’s Board President, Kapena Alapa’i, will host a Talk Story discussion about the movie with the film’s writer-director ‘Āina Paikai and producer Kaliko Ma’i’i.
