Synopsis

As beings of the night, the Mū live alongside the human world but are not part of it. After the Mū are expelled from their lands, Nihipali and Na’iwi stay behind alone in the forest. When Nihipali comes across a human child, her desire to be seen by humans conflicts withNa’iwi’s search for security.

Our take

Ty Sanga delves into the culture of his native Hawaii with his poetic exploration of the Mü: nocturnal spirits that appear in Hawaiian legends. Set in ancient times, this tale of a woman’s conflict between the mystical and human world makes use of the blue shadows of the night to evocative effect.
