Hawaii: Living on the Edge in Paradise?

News Story

On Tuesday, May 7 (PLV), and Wednesday, May 8 (NYC), PaceDocs invites you to the screening of their much-anticipated documentary about Kīlauea’s volcanic eruption and the resiliency of the Hawaiian people.

During the summer of 2018, hundreds of earthquakes shook the summit of Kīlauea, sparking the volcano’s largest eruption in 200 years. To some, it was a disaster. To others, it was the goddess Pele’s way of creating new ʻāina (land). The Hawaiian peoples’ resilience and cultural unity is a lesson in the true spirit of Aloha.

Hawaii: Living on the Edge in Paradise? was filmed and produced by PaceDocs, Pace University’s award-winning Media, Communications, and Visual Arts (MCVA) travel documentary production course led by Director of MCVA Maria Luskay, EdD. Previous productions include Puerto Rico: Hope in the Dark, Ridge to Ranch to River to Reef: Florida’s Conservation Connections, and many more. For an exclusive behind the scenes look into their process, check out the MCVA blog!
