I Was A Simple Man
I Was A Simple Man directed by Christopher Makoto Yogi

Here is the official trailer for I Was A Simple Man, the Hawaiian ghost story drama starring Constance Wu and Steve Iwamoto which premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Hawaiian filmmaker Christopher Makoto Yogi, the film stars a cast of Asian American and Native Hawaiian actors including Steve Iwamoto, Tim Chiou, Kanoa Goo, Chanel Akiko Hirai, Hau’oli Carr, and Nelson Lee.

Following the Hawai‘i Big Screen premiere at the Hawaii International Film Festival, I Was A Simple Man opens in theaters on November 19th, 2021.

I Was A Simple Man is a ghost story set in the pastoral countryside of the north shore of O’ahu, Hawai’i. Revealed in four chapters, it tells the story of an elderly man facing the end of his life, visited by the ghosts of his past. Incorporating familial history and mythology, dream logic and surrealism, I Was a Simple Man is a time-shifting, kaleidoscopic story of a fractured family facing the death of their patriarch that will take us from the high-rises of contemporary Honolulu to pre-WWII pastorals of O‘ahu and, finally, into the beyond.
