Martin Butler and Bentley Dean, Australia/Vanuatu 2015 (M violence & offensive language). In Nauvhal with English subtitles

Set on a remote Pacific island, covered in rain forest and dominated by an active volcano, this heartfelt story, enacted by the Yakel tribe, tells of a sister's loyalty, a forbidden love affair and the pact between the old ways and the new.

Australian documentary filmmakers Dean and Butler collaborated with villagers in the Vanuatu highlands who’d never seen a movie to create this luminous tale of forbidden love and continuously evolving tradition.
