The Honolulu Museum of Art featured a film this month, Song of the Kauri, directed by Mathurin Molgat. The film, a part of the Aotearoa Film Festival, is about the ancient native Kauri tree of Aotearoa (New Zealand), it’s sustainability, and how it is used to craft musical instruments. After a recent trip to New Zealand, I noticed how vast and beautiful the kauri trees are. I recommend seeing the film for inspiration on how we can appreciate and sustain our own native flora and fauna.
Song of the Kauri is, “An environmental film full of music, forestry, hand crafted instruments, New Zealand’s incredible natural beauty and friends.”
