Use of Film
“Shaka, A Story of Aloha” will likely be submitted to film festivals in 2023 to build awareness and distribution partnerships. Key distribution sought includes streaming online, theatrical release and television placements.
The film is designed for educators to use as an icebreaker in classrooms to teach island history, virtues and values of the Shaka and Aloha Spirits. Following airing, student reflection, panels, roundtables or hands-on exercises may follow. Three special edition Shaka Curriculum sets for K-12 secondary school use are available.
The film may also be used as an icebreaker during corporate facilitation and training sessions to teach the history, virtues and values of the Shaka and Aloha Spirits. Following airing, reflection, panels, roundtables or hands-on exercises may follow. Possible uses include:
