Event Details

Presented by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU. Cosponsored by the Columbia University Pacific Climate Circuits Working Group and Nā ʻŌiwi NYC.

Mele Murals is a documentary about the transformative power of art. At the center of this story are renowned graffiti artists Estria Miyashiro (aka Estria) and John Hina (aka Prime), and a group of Native Hawaiian youth in the rural community of Waimea, Hawaiʻi. Together they create a mural that addresses the ill effects of environmental changes and encroaching modernization on Native culture. Mele Murals shows how a public art project centering Native Hawaiian culture and traditions transforms the students, the local community and, unexpectedly, the two artists as they rediscover their own identities and responsibilities as Hawaiian artists.

The screening will be following by a conversation with director Tad Nakamura, Noelani Goodyear-Ka’ōpua (University of Hawaiʻi, Mānoa), and Dean Saranillio (NYU Department of Social & Cultural Analysis).
