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.
