THE HEALER STONES OF KAPAEMAHU
October 24 only
Q&A with Directors Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, Dean Hamer & Joe Wilson and Editor Bill Weber following the screening!
On Honolulu’s famed Waikiki Beach stand four giant boulders placed as a tribute to the four legendary mahu–individuals of dual male and female spirit-who brought the healing arts from Tahiti to Hawaii long ago. Although the stones have survived for centuries, their story has been hidden and the respected role of mahu erased. TheHealer Stones of Kapaemahu documents the trail of post-colonial suppression through the eyes of a Native Hawaiian director, herself mahu, and uses rare archival materials, new historical findings, and vivid animation to bring the unexpurgated story back to life.
Directed by Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, Dean Hamer, Joe Wilson, 2022. 56minutes.
