Ho’oilina at LA Skins Fest
Pacific canoes launch onscreen at the first Los Angeles Skins Festival, a grassroots film and video festival hosted by LA’s Native American community Nov 9-11.
Filmmaker Maui Tauotaha (Hawaiian-Tahitian) premiers Ho’oilina: Continuing the Legacy on Sat 10 Nov 1pm at LA City College in Hollywood. Maui shot the short doc at Lahaina Festival of Canoes on Maui where his father and other kahuna kalai wa’a (canoe masters) from around the Pacific built and paddled traditional wooden canoes.
LA Skins Fest is organized by filmmaker Ian “Crazy Ind’n” Skorodin (Choctaw) with community screenings and events at Fox and Paramount studios, House of Blues and Autry Museum.
