From the jury:

“The themes that this powerful, poetic film explores are specifically grounded in a uniquely Hawaiian experience — exploring the struggles of contemporary Hawaiians through an intimate, honest, and empathetic lens,” the jury said. “Yet the story this film tells, the complex characters it follows, and the struggles they face have universal relevance.”
