This inspirational short film looks at farming, food, and island culture, and features tours of Oahu’s edible backyard gardens, roof-top farmers, chefs, Hawai’ian cultural practitioners, and an awe inspiring group of interns from the island’s most famous organic Farm, MA’O. A follow up to the feature length documentary INGREDIENTS, INGREDIENTS HAWAI'I illustrates how the local food movement is taking root in Hawai’i with a beautiful and inspiring portrayal of a vibrant food community dedicated to human, environmental, and cultural health.
