Waves of Change will change the way that you see and think of Lahaina forever. Whether you are a visitor to the islands or home grown, you will be captivated and enriched by this film. Lahaina will forever be more than one of the most beautiful and exotic places on earth, but one that spiritually connects the Hawaiian people from ancient times to present day.
In 1999 Hawaiian Music legend and documentary filmmaker Eddie Kamae visited the West Maui town of Lahaina, only to find that Pioneer Mill, the center of Lahaina’s sugar industry, was closing down. Eddie knew that this signaled the end of Lahaina’s plantation era, a simpler, more innocent time that he remembered fondly from the childhood summers he spent in the area visiting his grandmother. He knew that a change as momentous as this needed to be documented, so he immediately hired a crew to film the last harvest, the last cane burning, and the final days of operation at Pioneer Mill.
