Image from the film Mele Murals.

Mele Murals documents the transformative power of modern graffiti art and ancient Hawaiian culture for a new generation of Native Hawaiians. At the center of this story are the artists Estria Miyashiro (aka Estria) and John Hina (aka Prime), a group of Native Hawaiian charter-school youth and the rural community of Waimea—all of whom confront the ill effects of environmental changes and encroaching modernization on their native culture.
