Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings will be screening at the Pacific Rim Film Festival in Santa Cruz, CA as part of a double-feature with The Tsunami and The Cherry Blossom.


The path to greatness is not always certain. Growing up awkward and the child of a single mother, Jake Shimabukuro was a skinny teenager when he first picked up the ukulele. Admittedly, it was Jake’s naiveté that allowed him to handle the instrument with such an uninhibited, wild approach. It is with sheer tenacity and an uncommon passion for the instrument that the young ukulele player was able to rise to unimaginable heights as a result of his gift. His self-taught skills and hours of training have lead him to world-wide acclaim. From deeply personal interviews with Shimabukuro, Life on Four Strings succeeds in presenting the arc of an artist, the psyche of the man, as well as the inevitable trials and hardships that come along with such an astonishing rise to the top.

Q&A with director Tadashi Nakamura following the film.
