Two renowned Hawaiian street artists follow different paths back to their roots, and their personal journeys collide with the recent resurgence of native language and tradition in Hawaii. Estria Miyashiro, who studied art in San Francisco and became an international graffiti star, comes home to reconnect with his culture; John Hina (a.k.a. Prime), a local icon of the Honolulu graffiti scene, returns to his art after becoming a family man. Collaborating with a group of Hawaiian youth from the rural community of Waimea on an ambitious mural project, their journey traces the arc of modern Hawaiian identity, the challenges of connecting with tradition in the face of modernization, and the transformative power of public art.

Oli is an ancient form of Hawaiian chant, and an integral part of the islands’ culture. With no written language, oli was the primary means of preserving oral histories, as well as a source of entertainment, even a form of prayer. This film tells the story of two men living in New York who are initiated as kahu oli(caretakers of the tradition) in a time when only a select few are fluent in its nuances.

Co-presented by the New York University Center for Media, Culture and History
