This one hour documentary film chronicles the evolution of a small beachside community from ancient spiritual haven, to playground for Hawaii’s royalty, to the world’s most famous beach and visitor destination. The film is the first comprehensive chronicle of Waikiki’s 500-year history brought to life with historical photographs and moving footage, Hollywood film clips, and rare oral histories told by the people who made Waikiki, Waikiki.
The film previewed in Washington D.C. at the National Geographic Society. Its premiere in Hawaii was held on Waikiki beach, under a full moon to an audience of 5,000 viewers, setting the precedent for what has become the City of Honoulu’s “Sunset on the Beach” public movie screenings held monthly in Waikiki.
The companion film is available (see Films & TV).
