American Aloha: Hula Beyond Hawai'i

AMERICAN ALOHA: HULA BEYOND HAWAI'I tells the stories of three kumu hula (master instructors) who direct hula schools based in California. The film explores the challenges they face trying to perpetuate hula faithfully, from the very traditional to the contemporary, as it evolves on distant shores. Their stories serve as a reminder of the power of tradition for communities creating a home away from home.
