Pacific Islanders in Communications (PIC) presents PIC Exchange in partnership with the Honolulu Museum of Art’s Doris Duke Theatre.
PIC Exchange is a community engagement screening series that brings community members together in an inclusive way to share, learn, discuss, and get involved with issues that are pertinent to the Pacific.
Mele Murals is a documentary about the transformative power of art through the unlikely union of graffiti and ancient Hawaiian culture. At the center of the story are two renowned street artists—Estria Miyashiro (aka Estria) and John Hina (aka Prime)—a group of Native Hawaiian youth, and the rural community of Waimea. Through their stories Mele Murals shows how public art and Native Hawaiian traditions transform the artists, students, and community.
A panel discussion moderated by Keoni Lee of ʻŌiwi TV will follow the screening.
