The world premiere of "Water Like Fire" a film starring Cody Easterbrook, debuts in theaters on November 29th as an official selection of the Hawai'i International Film Festival (HIFF)

 

"Water Like Fire" captures the story of a brother and sister who have gone through the tragic loss of their parents. “The film is really about how people cope with grief in different ways,” said Mitchel Viernes, director and co-writer of Water Like Fire.

As the coronavirus pandemic expanded earlier this year, the message behind the film became a common theme.

“I think the power of cinema is to help people feel like they’re not alone in all the different things we all struggle with as humans,” Viernes said.

'Water Like Fire' is available for viewing at a drive-in screening, in theaters and via virtual platforms as part of the 40th annual Hawai'i International Film Festival (HIFF)

The episode is the sixth in season three of the series and was directed by Krishna Rao, who praised Easterbrook for his portrayal. MAGNUM P.I., Episode #306, "Tell No One" with guest star, Cody Easterbrook will air in the new year on CBS Television.
