“Tanna is a multi-award winning feature film set in the South Pacific, based on a true story and performed by the people of Yakel in Vanuatu.
On the lush tropical island of Tanna the conviction of two star-crossed lovers will change their tribe’s culture forever. Wawa, being readied for the ceremony that will recognize her as a grown woman, is in love with the handsome grandson of the tribal chief. When, as part of an effort to resolve island hostilities, Wawa is betrothed to a man from another tribe, she must choose between loyalty to her clan and her own heart.”
There’s also a film poster:
Two tribes. One love.
Do you think you could you pinpoint Vanuatu on map? Anyway, Tanna looks like a great movie, I’d love to see it!
