VIRTUAL EVENT: Hawaiʻi and Pacific Short Film Series | “Standing Above the Clouds”

December 15, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Try Think logo and film strips

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 featured short film for December is “Standing Above the Clouds”.

Film Description: When the world’s largest telescope is set to be built on their sacred mountain, Mauna Kea, three Native Hawaiian families dedicate their lives to defending it. Through the lens of mothers and daughters, Standing Above the Clouds explores intergenerational healing and the social and emotional labor of retaining ancient ceremonies while putting your body on the line to protect a sacred mountain.

Registration is required!
