TANNA

DIR: MARTIN BUTLER & BENTLEY DEAN
CULTURAL DIRECTOR: JIMMY JOSEPH NAKO
YAKEL TRIBE | VANUATU
2015 | 104 MINS
(SUBTITLED)

Filmed on the Vanuatu Island of Tanna and enacted by the Yakel tribe, TANNA tells of a sister’s loyalty, a forbidden love affair and the pact between the old ways and the new.

Mythic in its simplicity, the film is based on a true story that took place in 1985 and carried significant ramifications for the evolution of tribal society.

Directed by Martin Butler and Bentley Dean, TANNA stars an indigenous cast who had never watched a movie and learned their craft during filming. It is nominated for Best Foreign Language Feature Film at this year’s Academy Awards.
