The Haumāna
The Haumāna is showing, at 7 p.m. May 3, at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro
The Haumāna is an award-winning independent film by Keo Woolford.
When the charismatic host of a cheesy Waikiki tourist show accepts the challenge of leading a group of high school boys through the demanding discipline required for a traditional hula festival, he becomes as much a student as a teacher when he reconnects with the culture of Hawai`i he had abandoned.
A Q-and-A with Keo Woolford and cast members will take place after the film.
Tickets $10 in advance at brownpapertickets.com, or $15 cash at the door.

May 4
Searching for Sugar Man
Searching for Sugar Man will show, at 7 p.m. May 4, at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro.
The film centers on the true story of Sixto Rodriguez.
In the early 1970s, Sixto Rodriguez was a Detroit folksinger who had a short-lived recording career with only two well received but non-selling albums. Unknown to Rodriguez, his musical story continued in South Africa where he became a pop music icon and inspiration for generations. Long rumored there to be dead by suicide, a few fans in the 1990s decided to seek out the truth of their hero’s fate. What follows is a bizarrely heartening story in which they found far more in their quest than they ever hoped, while a Detroit construction laborer discovered that his lost artistic dreams came true after all.
Tickets are $12.
