Hula Girls: Imagining Paradise (2005)

The intersectional, decolonial documentary Hula Girls: Imagining Paradise (2005) is a fantastic portrait on the construction of the “hula girl” throughout the colonial campaigns over the Polynesian Islands. You can watch three short clips of the documentary for free online via the Australian Screen website; see clip 1 here and/or purchase the DVD here.
