Ka Huaka

Every spring since 1971, the best hula hālau are invited to Hilo, Hawai‘i Island to perform in the most prestigious hula competition of its kind: the Merrie Monarch Festival. The film follows the journeys of three hula practitioners—a teacher, a chanter, and a dancer—as they prepare to step onto the stage. PepsiCo’s Allison Polly leads the discussion with Gerard Elmore and Jason Cutinella of NMG Network along with Avi Mannis and Alisa Onishi of Hawaiian Airlines.
