(aching eye)

One hundred years after the overthrow of the Nation of Hawai'i, Kamaka'eha, a ceremony at the erupting Kilauea Volcano unifies the political struggle of native Hawaiians with the living land they fight to regain. This lyrical documentary blends traditional oral history with visual techniques drawn from still photography and video art. It interweaves the personal stories of six Native Hawaiians with powerful portraits of Hawai'i's volcanic terrain.
