The story of this film could be seen as a new version of Romeo and Juliet, carried over into the setting of one of the Oceanic islands – the film's namesake, Tanna. It could be, had it not happened in the 1980s for real. The film's heroine, the beautiful Wawa, is given over to a neighboring tribe in order to maintain peace on the island. This happens against her will, however, as she is mutually in love with a warrior from her own village. The youths rebel against ancient traditions and taboos, setting against them their own great love. What will win out in such a confrontation? Respected Australian documentary-makers Bentley Dean and Martin Butler debut with a feature film, keeping an eye for detail, using non-professional actors and natural scenery. They share the legend of the Yakel tribe through this visually stunning film, full of color and eroticism, which was lauded during Critics' Week at last year's Venice Film Festival.
