Kapaemahu – For your consideration

Pacific Islanders in Communication’s animated short film, Kapaemahu, has qualified to be nominated for an Oscar in this year’s Academy Awards!

Directed by Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, in collaboration with her longtime filmmaking partners Dean Hamer & Joe Wilson, Kapaemahu reveals the hidden history of four healing stones on Waikiki Beach.  This short film will also be an integral part of an upcoming full-length documentary, The Healer Stones of Kapaemahu, that will revive the original Hawaiian legend and examine how, why and when this cultural legacy of healing and gender diversity was suppressed.

Please accept this special invitation to preview the short here, and stay tuned for news about the future broadcast of the documentary. Click on the photo above to watch.
