Tanna is a tiny island in the Vanuatu archipelago near Australia. This is a beautiful movie, beautifully made, which I highly recommend. This is a movie movie, not a documentary. First movie ever filmed in Vanuatu. Oldest story line on earth, well told. The actors are mostly present day residents of the island, who live pretty much in the manner depicted. Based on actual events, which occurred in the 1980’s. The actors are gorgeous, the kids are fantastic. This is why I love SIFF, this movie, right here.
