'Ulu'ulu at HIFF 2016

PRESERVING OLYMPIC DREAMS AND PLANTATION MEMORIES, featuring the newly restored and digitized 1984 Rice & Roses 30 minute documentary: COACH, produced by the Center for Labor, Education & Research. This half hour program tells the story of how Maui plantation kids trained in irrigation ditches in the 1930s and went on to win national and even Olympics championships under Coach Soichi Sakamoto!

 

This event is also presented in partnership with the Hawaii Council for the Humanities as part of HIFF's Film For Thought program.
