UNCLE BULLY’S SURF SKOOL
The description above encapsulates this man and his community, coming back from the brink of economic collapse after a global pandemic, to pivot into something deeper and nurturing. Then, the Maui wildfires in August happened. With a community decimated, UNCLE BULLY’S SURF SKOOL is now a visual document of a former Lahaina, now a memory. After a few days, the filmmaking team regrouped and immediately hit the ground to add a coda to this film, documenting a Lahaina in the aftermath and the recovery and resilience that has only begun on the very long road to rebuilding a town, a community, and its people.
All screenings of UNCLE BULLY’S SURF SKOOL are Free to the public. These are special event HIFF screenings, featuring Maui-based cast and crew, in support of #MauiStrong.
