This visually ravishing film tells the story of Wawu, a young woman who falls in love with her chief’s grandson, Dain. When her family forbids their marriage they run away, causing trouble with a neighbouring clan as inter-tribal war threatens. A rare chance to see a visually and culturally rich film from the South Pacific, this is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
