The Hawaiians – Reflecting Spirit DVD




A film by noted Hawaii filmmaker Edgy Lee, an early version opened the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. The film offers important cultural insights into who the Hawaiians are as a people, their origins, historical challenges and current social conditions, and the revival of spirit of a native people whose identity is intrinsically tied to their Hawaiian homelands. Rave review by veteran critic, Army Archerd (Variety), Lee’s film is also covered in the book “Progressive Hollywood, A People’s Film History of the United States,” by Ed Rampell. He places Edgy alongside leading doc filmmakers such as Oscar winners Errol Morris (“Fog of War”), Morgan Spurlock (“Super Size Me”), Robert Greenwald (“Outfoxed”) and Michael Moore (“Fahrenheit 9/11”). Rampell writes, “a film by Hawaii’s greatest local filmmaker… The Hawaiians is a film of transcendent splendor that defends Native rights and culture.”
