For the past year, it has been our privilege to work with two brilliant filmmakers, Ciara Lacy and Beau Bassett, on their film Out of State. In 2007, the state of Hawai’i sent about 2000 of its male prisoners to a private, for-profit prison deep in the desert of Arizona. But on the inside, a group of native Hawai’ian inmates are rediscovering their native language and dances. The film follows their journey.
As if working on this fascinating and important film weren’t rewarding enough, today we got a special treat: a gift package from our lovely clients, all the way from Hawai’i! Thank you Ciara and Beau, and Happy Holidays!
