Role: Director, Editor, Animator and Designer
Kula Mana Farm is a historic Japanese coffee and macadamia nut farm, nestled on the western slopes of Mauna Loa in the Kona coffee growing region of Hawai’i.
Farmed since 1919, the steep slopes resist mechanization, but reward the hand labor of their guests. This is a documentary film about the story of Kula Mana.
The end credits animation, which appears after the final scene of this documentary film, list everyone involved on the farm during our stay on Kula Mana.
