Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi will host a special screening of the Hōkūleʻa Worldwide Voyage documentary, MOANANUIĀKEA: ONE OCEAN. ONE PEOPLE. ONE CANOE, on Friday, March 8 at 6 p.m. in the William Charles Lunalilo Center.
As the education sponsor of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage, Kamehameha Schools has been blessed with the opportunity to share this film with our ʻohana. Students, faculty and staff, alumni, and their families are all invited to this special screening.
Moananuiākea, an ambitious documentary film, tells the story of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage of legendary canoe Hōkūleʻa. It was a journey that connected countless individuals and communities from around the globe. A voyage that also represented the fulfillment of the vision of Nainoa Thompson and his contemporaries, the passing of the mantle to the next generation of kānaka maoli who will retain the skills of their ancestors and perpetuate this tradition for generations to come.
Hōkūleʻa WWV crew member and Moananuiākea director/producer, Nāʻālehu Anthony, will be on-hand to answer questions and share manaʻo on the impact of the voyage and the opportunity to share this incredible voyage. Anthony is a Native Hawaiian from Kaʻaʻawa, O’ahu and is the founder of Palikū Documentary Films - a production company that focuses on documentaries and oral histories with a special emphasis on Hawaiʻi and its people. He is also a 1993 graduate of Kamehameha Schools.
Moananuiākea premiered on Nov. 18 at the historic Hawai‘i Theatre Center as part of the prestigious closing night for the Hawai‘i International Film Festival. It has since been screened around the world for audience interested in connecting with this powerful story.
