Summary:
Prolific Native Hawaiian producer HEATHER HAUNANI GIUGNI recounts her start in 1980's male-dominated world of news, "If you were female and wanted to do something, you were ridiculed!" She left news to start the first woman-owned production company in Hawai'i. She then developed the first television show produced by and about Native Hawaiians. She won a National Emmy for her nationally syndicated food and travel series for PBS, Family Ingredients and founded 'Ulu'ulu, the official moving image archive for Hawai'i. REEL WĀHINE OF HAWAI'I presents 6 short films about the history and accomplishments of Hawaiʻi women filmmakers. The project showcases pioneering filmmakers as they recount their role, philosophy, challenges and triumphs in building the Hawaiʻi film industry. It features active filmmakers and focuses on the changing world of media and the role women play in expanding Hawaiʻi's industry in innovative ways. Reel Wāhine of Hawaiʻi results from an intergenerational collaboration between young women graduates of Hawaiʻi Women in Filmmaking programs and a veteran team of filmmakers, eager to share their experience and expertise. The films will preserve the untold stories of Hawaiʻi women filmmakers in their own words and in all their diversity to inspire the storytellers and leaders of tomorrow.
