From the director (Sam George) of Dogtown and Z-Boys and Riding Giants comes Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau. The film chronicles how a shy young islander battled against cultural and even racial bias to become not only one of Hawaii’s most famous surfers, but a pioneering lifeguard at one of the most dangerous beaches on earth. How both in and out of the ocean he fought to retain the dignity of his people in a New Hawaii, where the spirit of the islands has reduced to tourist poster copy. And how, during the epic journey of the Polynesian voyaging canoe Hokulea to Tahiti in 1978, he gave his “last full measure” in the effort to save not only the lives of his shipwrecked crewmates but the soul of Hawaii itself. Narrated by Josh Brolin and winner of "Best Picture" at the Malibu Film Festival.
