I know the video is a bit long ......but I enjoyed every frame
You have convinced me, Henry. Leave your video exactly as it is. No other documentary can ever capture the surprise and passion invoked when you drop the bomb about the cult background of Tulsi Gabbard. And, Kawika certainly deserves to have his whole story told.
If Rap Reiplinger, God bless his soul, ever performed a comedy skit about being homeless in Hawaii - it might go something like this video. It took an amateur French-Canadian film maker to come to Oahu on his own money to show us something that our own lame-brained media will not. This unrehearsed and unedited interview with Kawika Crowley is really very funny, but the reality of being homeless invokes compassion. Kawika is in a seemingly impossible situation, but his spirit remains high and his motives unselfish. At one point when Kawika says he will donate half his salary to the Wounded Warriors, he is visibly emotional. The “tour” of his van that he calls home is laugh-out-loud funny. In spite of the humor, the story is ultimately poignant. Hopefully, mainland media will discover your documentary and send the viewership skyrocketing.
Some enterprising person could write a very successful screenplay of this story. Kawika is a terrific character – a modern day Jackie Gleason or John Belushi.
