Mōhala I Ka Wai, Kamaka O Ka Pua

“unfolded by the water are the faces of flowers”

Flowers thrive where there is water,
as thriving people are found where living conditions are good.


Ola is a film about health, hope and the power of communities to heal themselves.

We travel to remote parts of Hawai‘i and discover selfless individuals who've created innovative solutions to the challenges affecting their communities.

The Social Origins of Health

How healthy you are depends on
more than just your individual behavior.
