The Indie smash hit from Hawai`i comes to Nevada City, spreading the spirit of aloha! After many months of preparation Ka Hale Hula O Pilialohaokalani O Hilo is honored to present this film, with permission from Hula Nation Filmworks. Directed by Keo Woolford, the film is thought to be based on a true story about how a now well-known Kumu Hula (master hula teacher) found his ancestral roots as a young man during the resurgence of Hawaiian culture during the 1970’s.

Film Synopsis from THE HAUMĀNA website:
Jonny Kealoha is the charismatic host of a struggling Waikiki Polynesian lū`au show. To everyone’s surprise, including his own, he is appointed as the successor to a high school boy’s hula class when his former Kumu Hula passes away. He becomes as much a student as a teacher through the demands of leading the boys to a significant cultural event and rediscovers the sanctity of the culture he had previously abandoned.
With choreography and cultural consulting by Robert Cazimero, Lanakila Casupang, Maelia Loebenstein-Carter and Kaipo Hale the film is a not only a tribute to a culture so many love, but a view into the world of Hula.
