Project Description

This engaging 2-hour HD film walks the paths of Hamilton’s life, from the Caribbean islands where he was born, to Yorktown and Wall Street where he fought and worked, to Harlem, where he lived and died. We hear a Treasury Secretary, a Supreme Court Justice, publishers, warriors, pornographers, lawyers, calypso singers and urban gang members talk about money, rights, news, battle, sex and honor—all the themes that shaped Hamilton’s life, helped him make modern capitalist America, and led to his death in the most famous duel in American history.
Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton illuminates the life and accomplishments of one of the most brilliant yet least celebrated Founding Fathers.
