‘Lihau’s Journey’ featured at Kahilu Theatre

Leiomalama Solomon Tamasese, 20, the Beamer-Solomon Halau O Poohala’s showcased hula mua (lead dancer), has inspired the film, “Lihau’s Journey,” which recently premiered at the Honolulu International Film Festival. The film takes audiences on a 30-minute video journey from the shores of Pelekane Bay in the shadow of Puukohola Heiau, through an arid dryland forest to rock enclosures of an ancient Hawaiian village, to a magical waterfall and on through a mysterious forest to an upland meadow, all to reconnect with Lihau’s great-grandmother and their hula roots.
