HÀ NỘI — Manzi Art Space and Hamakua Films (New York) will tomorrow screen August at Akiko’s, a film by Hawaiian director Christopher Makoto Yogi.
Shot in the pastoral countryside of the Big Island of Hawaii, August at Akiko’s is a quiet film filled with deep undercurrents of history and mythology. Capturing the daily lives of a tight-knit community of locals, the film immerses the viewer in the shape-shifting landscape of a place we all think we know, but really know little about: Hawaii.
