ĀINA (pronounced “eye-nah”) means “that which feeds us” in the Hawaiian language. Some of the world’s largest chemical companies use the island of Kaua`i as an open-air testing ground for pesticides on genetically modified crops. The film highlights a way to address some of the most pressing environmental and health crises facing the island of Kauai – and of island Earth. As ĀINA vividly illustrates, such is the power of sustainable agriculture. The focus is on solutions, the beauty of Kauaʻi and the wisdom of Hawaiian culture.
