Due to the ban on men dancing during colonial rule in Hawaii, female dancers have long dominated hula. This engrossing and lively documentary explores renegade Robert Cazimero’s mission of reclaiming the lost masculinity in hula. This led him to create Halau Na Kamalei, one of Hawaii’s oldest and most prestigious male hula groups. Experience their camaraderie as they prepare for the world-renown hula competition, the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival. “Na Kamalei - The Men of Hula” displays beautiful dance with deep cultural meaning. It is a visual feast.
