It Took Years to Change the Laws.
One Season to Capture Our HEarts.
Based on incredible and mostly untold stories, Rise of the Wahine is a feature-length historical sports documentary set in the 1970’s. It’s centered on a small band of minority pioneers from Hawaii who battled through racial and gender barriers--locally and nationally, socially and legally--that wouldn't allow girls to play sports.
It took years to changes the laws, one season to capture our hearts. From Chicago to DC to Honolulu, follow the journey of those who had what it took to Rise.
