DisOrient 2019 Centerpiece Film - Moananuiakea: One Ocean. One People. One Canoe
Moananuiakea: One Ocean. One People. One Canoe (2018) Feature Narrative  - 140 min. -  English, Hawaiian USA
Directed by Na'alehu Anthony

The 47,000 mile Worldwide Voyage of the iconic Polynesian canoe Hokulea was one of the boldest statements to come out of Oceania in generation, a voyage to connect the global community of Moananuiakea, the great expansive ocean, to navigate toward a more sustainable future.

The Pacific voyaging traditions of non-instrument navigation and wayfinding cultivate a deeply intimate understanding of the environment around us and fosters a strong relationship with our natural world. In Hawaiian tradition there is an ancient proverb that states, He waa he moku, he moku he waa, which translates to The canoe is an island, the island is a canoe. Living on an island chain, much like voyaging a sailing canoe, we realize that our natural world and its resources are a treasured gift; a gift with limited resources that we must all work together to carefully steward and navigate if we are to not only survive together, but thrive. Expanding this same concept, our big blue Earth is but a tiny island with its own limits in the vast sea of space. She is a treasured gift for whom all of mankind share in the responsibility of stewarding and navigating along a healthy, sustainable course to ensure that she remains intact and vibrant for generations to come.

In the spirit of voyaging, we gather up our courage, venture out far beyond our horizons, across vast oceans, to numerous countries and communities, seeking to connect and build lasting relationships with the great navigators of our time; those individuals who are making bold statements through positive, impactful action within their own communities in hopes of realizing a more healthy, sustainable future for our Island Earth and its inhabitants.
