About the Film: Aloha from Lavaland Directed by Phillips Payson & Zenna Seradwyn In 2014, Hawaiiʼs Kilauea volcano erupted and lava began flowing directly toward the center of Pahoa, a small rural town on the Big Island. Hard to predict and impossible to stop, the flow threatened to cut off the townʼs main access road, which would leave the residents of this already isolated community to rely solely on one another. This film explores what it really means to live in such an unpredictable paradise, and what the incident can teach the rest of the world about community, sustainability, harmony, and aloha. Shot and produced by several Pahoa community members, it offers a unique insiderʼs look at life in the midst of a slow motion disaster. The documentary interviews dozens of Pahoa community members, with key interviews from notable community members and experts.
