Don't Miss "To You Sweetheart, Aloha"

One of my favorite made-in-Hawaii films will be airing on PBS Hawaii (ch. 10/11) this Thursday, 10/19 at 8pm. "To You Sweetheart, Aloha" by S. Leo Chiang and Mercedes Coats documents the life of charming 94-year-old ukulele master Bill Tapia. What starts as a pretty standard biography takes an unexpected turn: the film's focus quickly shifts to an uneasy romance between Tapia and Alyssa, his 26-year-old manager. Don't miss this film!
