2008-09-26 Maui Boyz: Hawaiian Sup'pa Men
Maui, the tropical island whose beautiful beaches, stunning volcanoes, and world-class surfing come immediately to mind when one thinks of Hawaii, has long been considered a playful paradise for the rich and famous and, lately, a magnet for mass tourism.  But what of the local men who consider the island their home and make a living there year-round?  Maui Boyz, a lush and introspective film, documents the story of 10 such individuals.

Hawaiian waterman Archie Kapeala, who spends his days guarding the beaches and guiding big wave surfers, recounts the history of Hawaiians and their connection to the ocean. Dedicated to training the next generation of surfers, Matt Kinoshita balances work as a fireman  and life as a father.  Ahanu Tson-Dru is a member of the next generation, eager to take on the big waves that appear once a year off the coasts of Maui, known to the fearless surfers as Jaws.

Although a large number of the men profiled in Maui Boyz are actively involved in surfing or other water activities and have formed a strong attachment to the water, the stories told here go beyond the waves.  Cowboys, known as paniolos, talk about a life tilling the land and being close to animals and nature.  Leonard Pagan describes the complicated irrigation needs of Hawaiian agriculture, while   musician Lukela Keala expresses his love of music and shares concern for the troubling health issues of the Maui youth

Beautifully shot by German filmmaker Carsten Maaz, Maui Boyz is much more than a surfing documentary.  It carves a deep and fascinating look into the varied lives of men who live, work and play on the island of Maui.
