Received in a personal email from Cameron Crowe:

“If we were able to make some small offering in the spirit of the love we felt making the film, then the movie has a place in the world.”
“….I’m happy that I was able to do the climactic final scene of the movie with a Cyril performance -“Ipu Lei Manu”.  Happily this wonderful track is also on the soundtrack album.   Hooray for that.
I hope you enjoy the movie and know that I would love to work with you again in any form.  It was a real joy to film your performance, and as always to use your unforgettable music. Thanks again for everything.   Best to you and the family!!!
Your fan always,
Cameron Crowe
