An award-winning documentary and a panel discussion with local artists anchor this weekend’s screening series at the Guam Museum.

The Senator Antonio Palomo Guam Museum, in partnership with Pacific Islanders in Communications and the Guam International Film Festival present PIC Exchange featuring the documentary, ” Mele Murals,”  kicks off at 11:30 a.m., July 8.

The screening series aims to create awareness and engage communities in an inclusive way to share, learn and discuss topics that are important to the Pacific and its people, according to a Guam Museum release.

“Mele Murals” is a documentary about the transformative power of art through the unlikely union of graffiti and ancient Hawaiian culture. At the center of the story are two renowned street artists - Estria Miyashiro and John “Prime” Hina – a group of Native Hawaiian youth, and the rural community of Waimea. Their stories show how public art and Native Hawaiian traditions transform the artists, students and community. 

"Mele Murals" was winner of the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 2016 Guam International Film Festival. 

The film screening comes on the heels of Guam Spraycation, a week’s worth of mural painting led by international artist Tristan Eaton, local artists and artists from across the US, Europe and South Africa.  As part of the series, a panel discussion held after the screening will include local delegates of Guam Spraycation 2018 - Guam Art Exhibit representatives Joshua Agerstrand and Jeffry Ejan, with OPAKE representatives Tim “Sois” Deleon Guerrero, Jerome “Hief” Daco  and Shaun “Guiy” Juan.
