Made in Hawaiʻi: A Retrospective of Hawaiʻi Film Makers hour 2

As part of their 20th anniversary, the Hawaiʻi International Film Festival (HIFF) hosts Made in Hawaiʻi: A Retrospective of Hawaiʻi Film Makers, a six-part series looking at 70 years of film making in Hawaiʻi. Hour two spotlights a George Tahara film focusing on the folktales of Hawaiʻi, "Kioni's Poi Pounder." This film was eventually used by the Department of Education in Hawaiʻi. The film tells the legend of how Mokoli'i island (Chinaman's Hat) came to be in Kāneʻohe Bay. Also featured are excerpts from "Halau Hula I Maiki at Pupukea" by Dan Garab and Videololo at Paradise Cove in 1979 and shots from the Diamond Head Crater Festival in 1972 by Tip Davis. Recorded on May 3, 2001. Includes interviews with George Tahara; Esther Figueroa about organizing the retrospective; Dan Garab; and Tip Davis.
