Pivotal “Green” Film (& Sundance winner) Debut’s in HI

Most Important Film of 2009 Coming June 29th—BE THERE. The Future Depends On It

Filmmaker Josh Tickell was 10 years old when he sat at the foot of his mother's bed and listened to her try to explain the "unexplainable" sickness that afflicted her.

July in Waikiki: Japan vs. Hawaii Hula Showdown

It goes without saying that one of the aspects that makes Hawaii such a special place is the unique bonds that link us to cultures across the oceans. Hula is no exception: On Saturday, July 11, the annual Hula Ho’olauna Aloha Festival bridges Japan and Hawaii for a weekend of celebrating the graceful art of storytelling through dance and chant.

New Film Fest Looks For Laughs in Selflessness

By now you must think we’ve gone film festival crazy. Yet there’s good news for those of us with short attention spans and big hearts: The EarthDance International Film Festival is coming to town!

Padovani's Chocolate: The Next Great Hawaiian Product

Starbucks did it with coffee. Now, Philippe Padovani is going to do it with chocolate. The idea of taking an everyday staple and making it an indulgent—albeit attainable—luxury item, isn't new. However, the manner in which entrepreneurs elevate said item can make all the difference in the world.

The Sea, Illuminated: Floating Lanterns

Let's face it: Memorial Day has always been another three-day "pardon" from the shackles of work... and not much more. Even here in Hawaii, the extent of "memorializing" is usually minimized to trying to get our neighbor's black lab out from under the house after the F-1 fighter jets do a fly-by.

International Piano Festival in Hawaii, June

This June the soundtrack of Hawaii will be all-Rachmaninoff. It's time for the Aloha International Piano Festival, and hometown hero (and assistant professor of piano at the Juilliard School of Music) Sean Botkin returns to present a recital, as well as teach master classes on the week's featured composer.

Waikiki Summer Concert Series, Al Fresco

If you haven't seen an outdoor concert at the Waikiki Aquarium, then this is the summer that you should break the trend. The Thursday evening "Ke Kani O Ke Kai" summer concert series has been an annual event that brings in the top Hawaiian artists, puts them onstage facing the lapping shoreline of Waikiki, and offers unparalleled sunset views as the music takes hold.

Showdown in Chinatown is Back!

Hawaii Filmmakers Decent to Honolulu's Hipster-town

The two-year old "Showdown in Chinatown" filmmaker's event is back, after a brief hiatus. The next "Main Event" showcase of films is scheduled for Friday, May 15th, at NextDoor on Hotel Street. Film topics are posted on Thursday, May 7th at 5:00 p.m.; the works need to be completed and submitted exactly one week later, on May 14th. 

Fishcake: Objects d' Art for your Home

One-of-a-Kind Works Abound

When Fishcake opened in December of 2007, there were certainly a few passers-by who did a double take at the front door. Instead of a saimin shop, the saw a stark white showroom. There were no tin pots gurgling miso or ox tail soup; yet at the rear of the store there was a giant cranberry-colored Barbara Chu print featuring a pair of orange koi. 

A Publisher Reflects After 70 Issues

I've been spending a decent bit of time these last few weeks thinking about the manner in which we receive—and absorb—information. It's no question that we're in the midst of an incredible shift in this realm. You've all heard the news: Major urban newspapers, many of which have been printing for over a 150 years, are perishing. Closing their doors. Ceasing to exist.
