Documentary Film on Blacks in Hawaii

Dear Forum members,

I am the Executive Producer of a documentary film on African Americans in Hawaii. Below is a fact sheet on the project:

We've Come This Far By Faith

Genre: Documentary

Length: One Hour(approximately 56:46)

Synopsis: African Americans have been part of Hawaii's multiracial

society for more than 200 years. Yet their role, their

contributions and their story remains largely unknown.

"We've Come This Far By Faith" explores that story, the

challenges of building a community and the irony of the

struggle with racial stereotypes and discrimination in a

land heralded as a paradise of diverity and acceptance.

As author and psychiatrist, M Scott Peck wrote, community

is the "process of building a shared story, built upon

respect for all individuals and inclusivity of

differences." The film examines how African Americans in

Hawaii have undertaken that process of community building

toward individual and collective fulfillment.

Based on the work of Dr. Miles M. Jackson, particularly

"They Followed the Trade Winds" (2004, University of Hawaii


Personnel Dr. Miles M. Jackson, (executive producer) and Steve Okino
(Key) (producer)

Schedule Production to begin in Spring 2007, completion expected in

early 2008
