The Legend of Eddie Aikau at Nowadays
On Monday, June 27th -- Join us for a screening of Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau with an introduction from the film’s director, Sam George.
Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau examines the legacy of the fearless big wave surfer and first-ever North Shore lifeguard beyond inspiring one of surfing’s most famous catchphrases, “Eddie Would Go.”
Through interviews, reenactments and dynamic historical footage, professional-surfer-turned-filmmaker Sam George uncovers Aikau’s little-known personal and family history and finds a compelling allegory for the reclaiming of Hawaiian culture. Narrated by Josh Brolin and produced by Stacy Peralta.
All Monday night films at Nowadays are free and open to the public / screening starts when the sun goes down (7:30PM). More info here.
