Kahala Theatres: Q&A Friday 4/5 following the 7:20pm show with Director Christopher Makoto Yogi & cast members


How does one confront an unspoken ancestral history? Cosmopolitan musician Alex Zhang Hungtai (fka Dirty Beaches) returns to the Big Island of Hawai‘i having been away from his home for close to a decade. Armed with just his suitcase and a sax, Alex quickly realizes that Hawai‘i is no longer the island of his childhood memories. Shot in pastoral countrysides of the Big Island of Hawai‘i, AUGUST AT AKIKO'S is a quiet film filled with deep undercurrents of history and mythology. Capturing the daily lives of a tight-knit community of locals, the film immerses the viewer in the shape-shifting landscape of Hawai‘i.
