About the Film:

Directed by Ann Marie Kirk. USA, 2012, 45 mins. Hawai‘i premiere
Follow the women of the Waimanalo Canoe Club as they prepare for and then race in the 2011 Na Wahine O Ke Kai Canoe Race from Moloka‘i to O‘ahu across the Ka Iwi Channel. The film reveals the atheletes’ incredible commitment to the ocean and their sport—and answers the question, ‘why do they do it?’
