3 things about Anthony Banua-Simon’s CANE FIRE

Cane Fire [2020]

1. Coco Palms’ famous torch-lighting ceremony was completely made up; it was never a native Hawaiian tradition.
2. Describing Charlton Heston as the guy whose veins bulge out.
3. “Just call me Uncle Larry.”

Certainly one of the finest documentaries I’ve seen in the past few years. Everyone ought to watch it before pondering a trip to Hawaii. I particularly admired the bold way that the filmmaker took fair advantage of his rights under Fair Use to interweave so many amazing film clips with his own footage. Bravo!
