Join us on Saturday, November 18th for a double screening of the locally made documentaries “Aloha from Lavaland” and “Reefs at Risk” followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
Aloha from Lavaland (55 min)
This award-winning documentary follows the 2014 eruption of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, which sent a flow of lava directly toward the center of Pahoa. Hard to predict and impossible to stop, the flow threatened to cut off the town’s only access road, which would isolate the town from the rest of the island—and the world. Created by local filmmakers, the film is an uplifting story of community, sustainability, harmony and aloha. www.AlohaFromLavaland.com
Reefs at Risk (12 min)
Set on the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, “Reefs at Risk” explores the harmful effects some sunscreen chemicals have on coral reefs and marine life. In order to protect this fragile ecosystem, Hawaii strives to ban a commonly used UV chemical, called oxybenzone, and hopes that other states and nations will follow. www.ReefsAtRisk.org
