Blue Tarp City (2009) Trailer
From the times of King Kamehameha the Great, the isolated coastal town of Wai'anae on the island of Oahu, HI has offered resistance toward the impositions of outsiders. Wai'anae now serves as the last frontier for the native Hawaiians. Blue Tarp City, by filmmaker Henry Mochida, takes a closer look into the recent spike of the Hawaiian-houseless population. Imagine post-card beaches, prime coastal property and the displacement of hundreds of indigenous people. Vivid imagery and music reveal the story of the beautiful Wai'anae coast, where we find the last frontier of community and passion amongst the Blue Tarp City.
