SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE PREMIERE
Director: Sergio M. Rapu
Duration: 1 hour 16 minutes
Language: English, Rapa Nui, Spanish with English subtitles
In a cinematic letter to his son, native Rapa Nui filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu explores the modern dilemma of their people who risk losing everything to the globalising effects of tourism.
The film follows four islanders, descendants of the ancient Moai, who are working to tackle the consequences of their rapidly developing home that the world knows as Easter Island. Mama Piru leads recycling efforts to reduce trash, Mahani and Enrique use music to reunite their divided community, and Sergio tries to understand the motivations of his father who embraces the advantages of building new businesses.
