A Journey Through the COVID-19 Pandemic

By Tamar Orell Petler

During the time of the pandemic and my personal loss of my father, Izack Alkalay, from it, I used the camera to express myself and my feelings. In a way, this exhibit created itself – after being fully vaccinated I looked through my camera files and thought that these photos reflect a story that I would like to share. I’m sure that many people can relate to these visuals and see their own personal stories and experiences throughout this period of time reflected. I believe that the experience made us stronger and more resilient and we can leverage this force to change many things in our world. At this exhibition the viewer can get a glancing view of my camera roll, representing a peek at my personal diary.

Growing People

Take a journey into the lives of three sisters affected by food insecurity in a place we think of as a vacation paradise. Through working at a local farm, the sisters learn about growing food as they gain an education and grow as people. MA’O Organic Farms, in the historical marginalized rural community of Wai’anae, O’ahu, is the site of a youth leadership program that has impacted the lives of hundreds of Hawaiian youth. This short documentary is an intimate look at the MA’O program through the stories of sisters Miki, U’ilani and Sheila Arasato.

Directed by Dana Forsberg, Growing People won “Best Documentary” at the Santa Cruz Film Festival. Dana’s work focuses on the empowerment of young women in marginalized communities.
