Description 1 online resource (1 video file (89 min.))
Summary Set in a neglected corner of the Hawaiian islands, The Land of Eb is a feature film about a Marshallese family struggling to create a new home for themselves on the periphery of society. Living in the stark volcanic landscape of one of the most remote Hawaiian communities, Jacob, an immigrant father and grandfather, struggles to provide for his large family. When Jacob overhears a cancer diagnosis from his doctor he keeps the news to himself, forgoing treatment in favor of working to pay off his property which he plans to pass down once he's gone. As Jacob's search for work becomes more desperate however, he enters into a dubious agreement with a coffee farmer who promises him the money he needs. His sickness getting worse and the new job beginning to fall apart, Jacob is left with few options. Sensing his own end, Jacob turns a small video camera on himself and begins to record his story - and that of his people, the Marshallese. A hauntingly beautiful affirmation of family, THE LAND OF EB brings full circle the consequences of man's destructive nature and lasting effects of the nuclear age with the honor and dignity of love tinged with hope
