Waikiki – In the Wake of Dreams – Japanese DVD


“Waikiki’s charming past is unfolded through re-enactments, film and TV clips…” – Variety.


This edited version of the full-length documentary film, in Japanese translation, chronicles the evolution of a small beachside community from ancient spiritual haven, to playground for Hawaii’s royalty, to the world’s most famous beach and visitor destination. This is the first comprehensive chronicle of Waikiki’s 500-year history brought to life with historical photographs and moving footage, Hollywood clips, and rare oral histories told by the people who made Waikiki, Waikiki. Many late great icons such as Don Ho, Keola Beamer, Moe Keale, Boyce Rodrigues and others appear in the film.

Previewed in Washington D.C. at the National Geographic Society, it premiered in Hawaii on Waikiki beach, under a full moon to an audience of 5,000 viewers, setting the precedent for what became the City of Honoulu’s, “Sunset on the Beach” where the public now views movies on Kuhio Beach.

A companion film viewer’s guide is available. (see Books)
