Directors: Martin Butler, Bentley Dean
Starring: The Yakel tribe
Australia/Vanuatu, 2015, 1 hour 44 minutes, Nauvhal with English subtitles
Set against the rain forest and volcanic slopes of the Pacific Island paradise of Vanuatu, this Romeo & Juliet tale is performed by an extraordinary cast from the Yakel tribe, who give a sprightly rendition of their own true story. This visually ravishing film tells the story of Wawu, a young woman who falls in love with her chief’s grandson, Dain. When her family forbids their marriage they run away, causing trouble with a neighbouring clan as inter-tribal war threatens. A rare chance to see a visually and culturally rich film from the South Pacific, this is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
“It’s a beautiful odyssey with strong spiritual undertones.” Screen International
