This short film full of ocean imagery references the coral polyp’s central role in the Kumulipo, or Hawaiian creation chant, as a metaphor for its current role as a warning sign of the destruction modern humans are doing to our oceans. The film features voiceovers by local ocean advocates Ekolu Lindsey, Lily Solano, and Paige Alms about rediscovering our kuleana to protect our ocean.
