We are in a moment of great crisis and change. For the sake of our own health, and for the safety of those around us, we are being urged to put care into everything we do. Stay home. Wash our hands. Support the most vulnerable among us. Be thoughtful and deliberate about what we truly need. It can feel scary, it can feel limiting, but it can also be a beautiful reminder that we’re all in this together.
Whether it's sheltering in place, social distancing, keeping your keiki engaged while schools are shut down, or all of the above, we're all adjusting to the new normal. To help pass the time, PIC would like to suggest watching some of our films and our partners' films online.
Here is a list of films that inspire us at PIC to take care in these trying times:
