Join HSPLS and Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities for a thought provoking film and conversation series with great films from Hawaiʻi and the Pacific. Films will be screened at the beginning of each session with a “Try Think” community conversation to follow.
The July 21st virtual screening will be “Hawaiian Soul”.
Film description: Against the backdrop of the 1970s native rights movement, George Helm, a young Hawaiian activist and musician must gain the support of kūpuna (community elders) from the island of Maui to aid in the fight of protecting the precious neighboring island of Kahoʻolawe from military bombing. This narrative short-film is based on the true story of Hawaiian hero, George Jarrett Helm Jr. It is a tribute to the legacy of a leader and artist that used his voice to inspire a revolution of consciousness.
