Congrats to 'Hawaii,' Indiewire's Project of the Week!

Thanks to your votes, the story of a rekindled male friendship, “Hawaii,” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to director Marc Berger! The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation with SnagFilms, and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month, the winner of which will receive a consultation with the Tribeca Film Institute.

Hawaii is a film about a homeless man that is reunited with a childhood friend who helps him, creating a bond that goes beyond friendship. Martin seeks for an odd job at Eugenio’s house. When Eugenio recognizes Martin as a childhood friend, and realizes his current situation, he decides to give him work for the summer. A power & desire game is generated and a strange relationship starts to grow, but it cannot flourish mostly because of the social differences that grew between them. This barrier typical of Jane Austen’s novels is resignified in a contemporary story of social classes.
