Filmmakers in attendance. Film program will be followed by Q&A

Variety calls this Sundance hit a “A Beguilingly Restful Ghost Story That Moves With the Hawaiian Breeze.” Starring Constance Wu (CRAZY RICH ASIANS), Steve Iwamoto, and Tim Chiou (SEAL TEAM), this sophomore feature from director Christopher Makoto Yogi is a lush cinematic love letter that spans several generations of one family based in Honolulu, Hawai’i. Yogi is an alumnus of Visual Communications’ Armed with a Camera Fellowship, and we are thrilled to welcome him back for the West Coast premiere of this film. — Eseel Borlasa
