About the film “Hawaiian Soul”
The film is based on the true story of George Helm, a Hawaiian musician who gained the support of kūpuna (community elders) on Maui to aid in the fight of protecting the neighboring island of Kahoʻolawe from military bombing. The movie is a beautifully crafted tribute to those who helped start the Native Hawaiian rights movement. “Hawaiian Soul” took home a pair of awards at the 2020 Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF).
