A “L?hain? Noon” is a solar phenomenon where the sun passes directly overhead. People standing outdoors no longer cast a shadow and Hawaiians believe that at this moment, an individual gains extra mana (power) as their shadow crawls back into their body. The occurrence is the centerpiece of three unrelated stories woven into in a new locally produced film called L?hain? Noon. The characters are confronted with choices, and their deepest desires are amplified by the midday sun.

Christopher Kahunahana is the director and a 2014 Sundance Film Festival Native Lab Alumni. Being a veteran of the Hawaii independent film movement. He talks about DIY filmmaking, art in Hawaii, and the future of the industry.  

 The project is currently in post-production with its release scheduled for the Honolulu international Film Festival in October.  You can watch the Kickstarter Trailer
