dir. Keo Woolford, USA, 2013, Drama, 90 min.

Philadelphia Premiere!

When the charismatic host of a cheesy tourist show in Waikiki accepts the challenge of leading a group of high school boys through the demanding discipline required for a traditional hula festival, he becomes as much a student as a teacher by reconnecting with the culture of Hawai'i he previously abandoned. In the process, everyone learns to work together as they prepare to present their dance, which represents countless generations before them, at the hula festival which showcases an authentic look at into the often misrepresented Hawaiian culture.


Kelly Hu (“Arrow”, “Warehouse 13”) plays a strong supporting role.

Get some delicious Hawaiian food before or after the film from the Poi Dog Snack Shop food truck, in our courtyard that afternoon!
