As part of our 3-part Indigenous Cultures Film Season, join us for a screening of the 2015 film Tanna, directed by Martine Butler and Bentley Dean. 

The film was shot on-location and stars Vanuatu islanders. It tells the true story of a couple who shunned cultural protocol and decided to marry for love.

The film will be preceded by an optional gallery tour in the Museum’s new Pacific Encounters gallery, led by Raki Ap.

Raki will give a post-screening talk chaired by ORIGINS festival director, Michael Walling with time for audience Q&A.

The Indigenous Cultures Film Season has been guest-curated by ORIGINS Festival.
