“Long ago, four extraordinary individuals of dual male and female spirit brought the healing arts from Tahiti to Hawaii. The name of their leader was Kapaemahu. Beloved by the people for their gentle ways and miraculous cures, they imbued four giant boulders with their powers. The stones still stand on what is now Waikiki Beach, but the true story behind them has been hidden – until now.” (www.kapaemahu.com)
We are excited to announce a special Try Think community conversation and viewing of Kapaemahu, which made the 2020-21 Oscar’s Shortlist for Animated Short Film. The 8-minute film will kick off our conversation around buried histories, reemerging stories, and the importance of the voices pushing them forward. Joining us will be two of the film’s writers, directors and producers Dean Hamer and Joe Wilson. This conversation and viewing will take place on Thursday, February 18th from 3:30pm-5:00pm HST via Zoom. Come and experience the beauty that is Kapaemahu and stay a while after to connect and share your thoughts about the film and the incredible moʻolelo it shares.
As always, this event is free and open to the public.
