The Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival is back and celebrating 39 years of Asia American + Native Hawaiian + Pacific Islander filmmaking. Held virtually and in-person, the festival will run May 4 – May 13, 2023.
Among the near 150 films that will be presented during the Festival, THE WIND & THE RECKONING is drawing attention from many local NHPI community members. A film mostly told in ‘Olelo Hawai’i, and based on the 2001 publishing of The True Story of Kaluaikoolau: As Told By His Wife Piilani, THE WIND & THE RECKONING “brings to life the story of a legendary Hawaiian hero. Ko’olau (Jason Scott Lee) contracts leprosy and vows to never be separated from his family and taken to the leper colony by sheriff McCabe (Henry Ian Cusick) and the Provisional Government.”
