BEST SHORT DOCUMENTARY 2016

ʻĀINA: That Which Feeds Us (23m, U S A) short documentary, dir. by Josh Thome. Watch Trailer

ʻĀINA (pronounced "eye-nah") means, “that which feeds us” in the Hawaiian language. The film highlights a way to address some of the most pressing environmental and health crises facing the island of Kauai - and of island Earth. That may sound like an outstanding claim, but as ʻĀINA vividly illustrates, such is the power of agriculture and consumer choices for people and the planet.

"To malama ʻāina is to take care of the earth that feeds us. The minute we lose site of that, we have signed our own palapala make, our death warrant."
--Sabra Kauka, from ʻĀINA

BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 2016

In Search of Balance (73m, U S A) feature documentary, dir. by Adam Pfleghaar. Watch Trailer

At a genetic level, humans are literally connected to the rest of the natural world through our DNA. But today’s highly processed foods, pesticide based monoculture farming methods, increasing urbanization, obsession with technology and destruction of the natural environment distance us further and further from the world we coevolved with. We are out of balance with nature and the reductionist philosophy of modern western medicine, once immensely powerful, seems inadequate to answer today’s challenges.
