A film viewer’s companion guide to using the film as a teaching tool.

A recent work by noted Hawaii filmmaker Edgy Lee, an early cut opened the 2005 Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian at a private screening 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. Lee’s film is covered in the new book “Progressive Hollywood, A People’s Film History of the United States,” by Ed Rampell, who places Edgy alongside leading documentary 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 calls Edgy “Hawaii’s greatest local filmmaker” and describes “The Hawaiians” as “a film of transcendent splendor” that defends Native rights and culture.
