Dear Thalia East Coast Premiere

November 12, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:20 pm

$5 – $8

Less than a mile from the tourist beaches of Waikiki is one of Hawaii”s largest homeless populations. This compelling documentary offers a firsthand look into the lives of Tracy Martin, his wife Tabatha, and four year-old daughter Thalia living on the streets of Kakaako, Oahu as a homeless family. Mixing archival footage, interviews, and footage shot by the Martin family themselves using GoPro cameras provided by the filmmaker.

Part of the Pacific Showcase presented by Pacific Islanders in Communications, this film is an important reminder of the human cost of ongoing gentrification in the Hawaiian islands caused in part by tourism.
