Kahilu Theatre will screen ‘‘Ike; Knowledge is Everywhere,’ as part of the theater’s second annual Kūkulu Ola Living Hawaiian Culture Film Series.

The film, directed by Matthew Nagato, will be shown on Sunday, Aug. 9 at 4 p.m.

In the documentary, both challenges and triumphs of Hawai’i’s education system is explored. The film follows the prequel, ‘Ola – Health is Everything,’ which offers an intimate portrait of brave individuals lighting the fires of knowledge for others in their communities.

‘Ike celebrates the power of compassion, collaboration, and community to address society’s most pressing social issues. The film provides insight into the long-term effect on a person’s health and an overall look at education as a primary source of opportunity, as it affects the everyday workings of society.

A mixture of deep personal and emotional segments are collaborated to create a film budding with the reality of education facing students of all ages and a glimmer of hope with a pathway to the future.


Following the film, a post-film discussion will led by the Waimea Education Hui.
