August At Akiko's

Narrative (Feature)

Acclaimed saxophonist, Alex Zhang Hungtai (Dirty Beaches, Last Lizard) plays a fictionalized version of himself who returns to his home on the Big Island of Hawaii after a decade's absence, and moves into a Buddhist bed and breakfast where he enters an unforeseen friendship with its owner, Akiko. A charming debut, exuding deeply chill vibes, this mystical homage to Hawaii is steeped in the allure of gilded memory, jazz, and healing love.
