About the Event
The story of Koolau as told through the writings of Piilani, his wife. Set in 1893 Kauai, Kalalau Valley. Koolau and his son have contracted Leprosy and have been decreed to be sent to Kalapapa, the leprosy colony on Molokai. Koolau and Piilani resist and are tracked into Kalalau Valley by the territorial military. Perhaps 70% of this film is in Hawaiian Language with english subtitles. The acting, starring Jason Scott Lee, is uniformly excellent and the production values, being in Cinemascope with 4K (rather than the more common 2K) image resolution make this a first rate viewing experience as well as poignant episode of Hawaiian history. Much of this was shot on the Big Island, and the director, David Cunningham, lives in Kona.
