Surf’s Up: Pōhaku

Previous NOWNESS contributor Bradley Tangonan, a Hawaiian-born director and producer, presents this thoughtful new film taken from an ongoing series exploring native Hawaiian culture, craftsmanship, and the spiritual energy (or ‘mana’) of raw materials. Telling the story of a single, traditional craftsman—Tom Pōhaku Stone—and their journey to hone a wood-carved surfboard, Tanognan’s film rides the waves of life, spirituality, and landscape.
