Pacific Heartbeat

Running the gamut from enlightening documentaries to musical showcases, the anthology series PACIFIC HEARTBEAT journeys into the heart, mind and soul of Pacific Island culture. 'Waimea 'Ukulele & Slack Key Guitar' captures rollicking concert performances, intimate backstage interviews and spirited jam sessions by the world's finest ukulele and guitar artists. 'Under a Jarvis Moon' documents the clandestine U.S. mission which sent young Hawaiian men to occupy tiny, isolated Pacific islands during the early years of World War II. 'Papa Mau: The Wayfinder' recounts the fundamental role master wayfinder Mau Piailug ('Papa Mau') played in reawakening Polynesian pride by teaching young Hawaiians the dying art of traditional open-sea canoe navigation. Keola Beamer, one of Hawaii's premier singer-songwriters, arrangers and composers, and master of the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, embarks on a genre-transcending musical journey with Native American flute master R. Carlos Nakai and American jazz pianist Geoffrey Keezer in 'Keola Beamer: Malama Ko Aloha (Keep Your Love)'. The last film in the series, 'There Once Was an Island - Te Henua e Nnoho,' explores the environmental crisis facing the Takuu atoll in Papua New Guinea.
