Special projects and series


TE KUHANE O TE TUPUNA follows a grandfather and a girl as they travel from the most remote island in the world, Easter Island, in search of Mana, the sacred power of their ancestors. This film is a journey from Easter Island to London, in search of the lost Moai Hoa Haka Nanaia, a statue of significant cultural importance. It explores the social and political landscape of the island of Rapanui as the people attempt to claim back what is rightfully theirs: their land and a lava-rock image of tremendous presence, representing one of the world’s most extraordi- nary cosmological views.
