About the Event

A  perfect film to follow the Recycle Hawaii Roadshow as it addresses the  impact of dominant consumerism and environmental damage on the fragile  & tender earth-centered psyche!

Tickets available at the venue on the day of the screening.

"Moments before drowning, she became the sea."

The  story of two women who find strength in each other despite their  personal struggles, Mermaids Lament follows two women: Oee (Dayva Summer  Escobar) a traumatized woman who has lost her voice and may or may not  be a mermaid. Her therapist, Dr. Nell Jamison (Justina Mattos) battles  with anxiety herself, attempts to help Oee overcome her delusions and  connect with reality. As they bond over their experiences, they learn to  be resilient like the ocean and embrace the power of imagination to  navigate the chaos of the world.

GB  Hajim has been supporting the Hawaiian Renaissance through his  multimedia work for over 25 years. He has produced over 150 Hawaiian  language dramas, animations, documentaries, podcasts, and educational  programs. MERMAIDS' LAMENT is GB's second feature film, following the  self-produced 2D animated sci-fi lesbian musical, "Strange Frame"  (2013), which featured an all-star cast including Claudia Black, Cree  Summer, Tim Curry, George Takei, Academy Award winner Gary Rizzo for  sound, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd for music.

GB  is excited to bring his passion for storytelling and his love for the  ocean to MERMAIDS' LAMENT. He splits his time between working with the  Hawaiian community, writing screenplays, freediving, and farming.

See  the heartfelt and moving story that explores the power of imagination  and the strength that comes from human connection, MERMAID’S LAMENT.
