From Pahoa With Lava

Community nonprofit Laulima Pahoa is pleased to announce it’s partnering  with the County of Hawaii Parks & Recreation Department and  Mainstreet Pahoa to return to the Pahoa Senior Center starting second  Saturday, December 8, 2018, at 12 noon with informational sign-ups and  volunteer recruitment activities for our new ongoing documentary project  “From Pahoa With Lava!” which will be produced by independent  filmmaker, Elizabeth Kerekgyarto. The show will be aired on Na Leo   Community Public TV as a monthly feature, with a “1 Year After - Lava  Party” on Saturday, May 4, 2019. Afternoon music will be provided by the  Laulima house band, The Geckos.
 

From Pahoa With Lava will challenge lava refugees and other residents  impacted by the recent lava flows to create and share their artistic,  expressive, musical, dancing or other process the journey brought out by  having a volcano erupt out of our backyard and swallow entire  communities within several months!
 

The “challenge” is turning all our shock and awe, loss, struggles and  victories into a painting, poem, song, dance or other performance action  to share with your friends, family, our island and the greater  universe.  Residents are still suffering through various stages of  grief, and it is hoped this project will help us all by offering a safe  venue for expression as well as provide spontaneous connections and new  opportunities to support our healing as a community!
 

The schedule will be as follows: Second Saturday, Dec.8 will be open for  questions and answers and collecting performance sign-ups and volunteer  recruitment and banner painting.  Thereafter the first Saturday of each  month (January 5th through April 6th) will be for interviews and  filming with special live audience viewing areas.  The second Saturday  of each month (Jan 12 through April 13th) will be ongoing documentary  question/answers and sign-ups for the following month’s filming and  other Laulima Pahoa projects coinciding with Pahoa Second Saturday Art  & Music Walk.
