Listen To The Forest

listen-to-the-forestListen To The Forest, an environmental documentary by award-winning musician and filmmaker Eddie Kamae, speaks to the widespread concern for rainforest preservation. It is about the Hawaiian Islands, and also about a Hawaiian way of feeling. A film for all ages, Listen To The Forest emphasizes the powerful connection between a unique natural history and Hawaii’s rich cultural life.

Combining interviews, traditional chants, and original songs and dances, this film from the beloved Hawaiian Legacy Series, gives voice to an older form of ecological wisdom summed up in the phrase ma-lama ‘a-ina – to take care of the earth – which is both our physical home and a source of spiritual nourishment.
