DOWN ON THE SIDEWALK IN WAIKIKI

In between growing frustrations toward cleaning up after an endless parade of tourists and reflections of a traumatizing memory, a voice rises from within a soft-spoken, Hawaiian janitor down on the sidewalk in Waikiki. This narrative short film is inspired by a collection of poetry published posthumously featuring the work of Kanaka Maoli poet Wayne Kaumualii Westlake (1947-84).
