The Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM), Positive H2O (+H2O) and Surfrider Foundation teamed up with award winning filmmaker Danny Miller to produce the new document…ary, CHANGING TIDES. This 15 minute film was officially selected for the 2012 Maui Film Festival. It was 100% filmed in Hawaii, yet it brings the issue of oceanic garbage into a global dialogue, where ideas are formed and solutions proposed.

The engaging story is told through the eyes of Hawaiian kapuna, professional watermen, scientists, and volunteers who share their passion for the ocean and what they are doing to protect it. Their stories bring us an in-depth look at oceanic garbage in the Pacific, and what it means for residents of Hawai’i and other Pacific islands impacted by the waste. CHANGING TIDES dispels the myths and demonstrates the real dangers of the Northern Pacific Gyre and provides solutions that individuals can take to decrease their plastic footprint.
The film will be shown at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center on June 16. Positive H2O and Surfrider will be holding a beach cleanup at Launiupoko Beach from 9-12 with a free lunch from Lulu’s afterwards. Bring your boards to enjoy our clean water playground after the cleanup. SLIM, +H2O, and Surfrider invite the Maui community to join us for the clean-up and lunch at Launiupoko, and at the MACC that evening to see our film, Changing Tides.
