‘Tanna’: Two Tribes, One Love

By October 15, 2015 Events
The next film in Sydney Film Festival’s Casula Powerhouse series of screenings is Tanna, a multi-award winning feature film, and the first ever feature shot in Vanuatu.

In one of the last traditional tribes in the South Pacific, a young girl Wawa falls in love with her chief’s grandson Dain. When an inter-tribal war escalates, Wawa is unknowingly betrothed as part of a peace deal. The young lovers run away, but are pursued by enemy warriors intent on killing them. They must choose between their hearts and the future of the tribe, while the villagers must wrestle with preserving their traditional culture and adapting it to the increasing outside demands for individual freedom.

Tanna is based on a true story and performed by the people of Yakel in Vanuatu.
