Na Kupu Mana ‘Olana (Seeds of Hope) tells the story of Hawaii’s return to local and traditional methods of growing food in the midst of growing food insecurity. “For over 1,000 years, the Hawaiian people produced enough food to support an estimated population of one million,” states the filmmakers. “Today, 85 percent of our food is imported. If current trends continue, Hawaii’s last agricultural lands will be gone by 2040.” The film includes interviews with more than 50 farmers, ranchers, scientists and educators who provide a wealth of information about Hawaii’s agricultural history while providing an inspiring vision for our future. $10. 3pm. Maui Arts and Cultural Center, McCoy Studio Theater (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 808-242-7469, Mauiarts.org
