Utilizing all of the elements created for the production, a DVD and online digital streaming version will be produced that will take the viewer further into the production, by including extended versions of interviews and additional content. These versions will be made available to the public through retail outlets and online digital platforms such as Netflix, Hulu and other international media distributors.

An Educational Tool “A gift to future generations”

The disc will also serve as an excellent educational tool as a companion to the website that together will offer students and educators a complete resource to learn more about the issues discussed in the film.

As a gift to future generations, a DVD will be shipped to the over 300 public schools, colleges and universities and 50 public libraries in the state of Hawai`i, reaching over 250,000 students and teachers.

Along with the DVD, educators can go online to the film’s website to create a complete educational resource. Using the DVD and website, teachers, students and learners of all ages can access and use the numerous lesson plans and educational activities that will be featured at on the film’s website. These curriculum materials and the DVD weave together video and online resources with an instructional strategy that builds on the visual and collaborative strengths of these media.
