About the Film:
Directed by Tadashi Nakamura. Hawai‘i. 2016. 66 min.
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.
