He Hawai`i Mau Short Film

(Director Lurline Wailana McGregor)

To see the entire two-minute short film visit: http://www.piccom.org/programs/he-hawaii-mau

This video is a brief journey through Lurline’s life, growing up in Honolulu in the 1950′s and 60′s, later moving to Washington, D.C. and coming home again in the 1990′s. I tell this story through old family movies, photos, contemporary video and Hawaiian music consistent with the time period being covered. It is about her growing awareness of her Hawaiian identity and what defines her today as a Hawaiian.
