Down on the Sidewalk in Waikiki

Directed By: Justyn Ah Chong | Runtime: 20 min | Plays In Short Block: None

In between growing frustrations toward cleaning up after an endless parade of tourists and reflections on 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).
