Under the Boardwalk: A Ukulele Love Story

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
An intimate glimpse into the current worldwide resurgence of ukulele mania and the Hawaiian-American culture it represents. It is a tale about love and community. ..The Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz and the ukulele instrument itself are the two main characters of the film. Their stories are intercut, as both overcome humble beginnings to meet with unlikely success...When one of the club members dies part way through the film, the narrative leads to profound discovery. One of life’s little pleasures, making music together, can be the cornerstone for a life well lived. ..The film, voted 'Best Locally Produced Film' at the Santa Cruz Film Festival, has been screened at festivals in the United States and abroad. Some of these venues include the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Carmel Art and Film Festival, the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, the New York Ukulele Festival, the Cairns Ukulele Festival (Australia), Helsinki Ukulele Festival and Uke Jam New Zealand. ..As one reviewer put it, "My objection to Koocher’s sweet and sometimes sad documentary about the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz is that it was hard to watch, take notes and at the same time horse around with my Makala Soprano Ukulele… Koocher's film captures the fun and magical Santa Cruz vibe."(Richard von Busack, film critic San Jose, CA)
