The Donn of Tiki

Donn Beach was so much more than just the godfather of tiki. He was an American maverick, creating opportunities against all odds. He reinvented himself many times, and was well known for embellishing the details of his extraordinary adventures. 

The Donn of Tiki takes on the task of separating fact from fiction to finally decipher his story - warts and all. There are slivers of truth to his tales- a youth spent in Jamaica, running rum with his brother in the days of prohibition, acquisitioning liquor and cigars for his World War II rest camps, and bringing the first commercial luaus to Hawaii.


But what this film truly uncovers is the optimistic entrepreneurial spirit that kept him moving forward, even in the face of failure, as well as the legacy he left behind.
