In one of the last remaining traditional tribes in the South Pacific, a young girl, Wawa (Marie Wawa), falls in love with her chief’s grandson, Dain (Mungau Dain). But when an inter-tribal war escalates, Wawa is unknowingly betrothed to another man as part of a peace deal. Determined to remain true to their hearts, the Wawa and Dain run away, but are pursued by enemy warriors desperate to enforce tribal law. With their lives on the line, the star-crossed lovers must choose between their hearts and the peaceful future of the tribe. Filmed on location in Vanuatu, breathtaking in scope and naturalism, based on a true story and performed by the people of Yakel, Tanna is an exotic ‘Romeo and Juliet’ tale of forbidden love and crackling adventure, capturing the essence of youthful romance and the formidable pressures of tribal life.
“Despite the novel setting it's remarkable how familiar the film's romantic drama feels. It's like Jane Austen in the Jungle as the characters defy tradition, cause social upheaval and follow their hearts in the quest for happiness.” – 3AW
“While in a narrative sense this ground has been walked many times before, the Yakel people's passion to tell this story is undoubtedly at the heart of the film's success.” – Guardian
“Tanna touches on interesting issues of individual and collective responsibility, and the relative merits of revenge and restraint. And, purely as entertainment, it's very watchable.” – FILMINK
