Every Memorial Day thousands of people come together on a beach in Honolulu, Hawai'i in Ala Moana Beach Park, to float candle lit lanterns as an hommage to loved ones who have passed away. While the ritual originated from the spiritual practice of Shinnyo-en developed by its late founder Shinjo Ito, the event was created for people of all beliefs. Having witnessed the beauty and grandeur of the event, a longtime veteran of Shinnyo-en, Shinji Kondo, decided to make a feature documentary A Candle Lights the Heart that not only records the one day event A Candle Lights the Heart follows these five families as they tell stories of those who they lost, how their grief impacted on their lives, and how the ceremony has helped them deal with their loss.
