‘Finding Ohana’ actors Brad Kalilimoku, Lindsay Watson and Branscombe Richmond joined Spotlight Hawaii this morning to talk about the success of the film, released this January on Netflix.
Much of the movie, set in Hawaii, was shot on Oahu, and features a variety of local actors. The three spoke about how special it was to be telling the stories of the people and places they are from.
State Film Commission Donne Dawson later joined the program to discuss the outlook for productions in Hawaii in 2021, and the economic impact they have.
