MIGHTY UKE
Directed by Tony Coleman
Canada / 2009 / 78 minutes

British Premiere

“Mighty Uke” travels the world to discover why so many people of different nations, cultures, ages and musical tastes are turning to the ukulele to express themselves, connect with the past, and with each other. From the Redwoods of California through the gritty streets of New York, from swinging London through Tokyo’s highrise canyons to Hawaii, ukers tell the story of the people’s instrument: The Mighty Uke.
