A film titled Okinawan Blue (Kokoro Odoru) will be premiered at the 2019 Hawai’i International Film Festival (HIFF)!

According to the HIFF site, the film is “[s]et in the quaint, picturesque island of Zamami, OKINAWAN BLUE explores what the island life means to its visitors and residents, weaving three strands of stories together into a sweet and moving omnibus film…Loosely tying these narratives together are characters that move in and out of the stories, especially the innkeeper of the Full Moon Hotel and her assistant, Yuhi, played by renowned Okinawan actor Shogen. Funny, quirky, and moving, OKINAWAN BLUE captures the breathtaking beauty and uniqueness of the region and its people.”
