Livestream Film: Te Kuhane O Te Tupuna (2019)

August 15, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm MDT

This is a photo of two people looking at a statue from a pacific islands culture.

This documentary film is a journey from Easter Island to London, in search of the lost Moai Hoa Haka Nanaʻia, a statue of significant cultural importance. It explores the social and political landscape of the island of Rapanui as the people attempt to claim back what is rightfully theirs: their land and a lava-rock image of tremendous presence, representing one of the world’s most extraordinary cosmological views.
