The film is dedicated to Kendall Struxness who completed the entire journey from Hawai’i to Kure even as cancer threatened his very life. He passed away in April, 2011, just as this film was in its final edit. A man of enormous heart and courage, he is greatly missed.
The series of voyages from Laysan to Kure Atoll in the Northwest Hawaiian Island chain was the subject of a film directed by Alyssa Fedele, “Family of the Wa’a”. The Family of the Wa’a is brought to you by an extraordinary team of people with a passion for airing compelling stories.
The “Family of the Wa’a” was accepted to the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival. This is a really cool festival and a really welcoming audience! Many viewers gave good en ligne avis about the film. Enjoy your screening!
