Australia/Vanuatu, 2015, 1 hour 44 minutes, Nauvhal with English subtitles

Set against the rain forest and stark volcanic slopes of the Pacific Island paradise of Vanuatu, this is a Romeo & Juliet tale of how two young lovers challenge their cultural tradition of arranged marriages in the name of love. Performed by an extraordinary cast from the Yakel tribe who give a sprightly rendition of their own true story. This visually ravishing film tells the story of Wawu, a young woman who has fallen in love with her chief’s grandson, Dain. When her family forbids their marriage they run away, causing further trouble with a neighbouring clan as an inter-tribal war threatens. A rare chance to see a visually and culturally rich film from the South Pacific, I can promise that this is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
