On May 25th PBS aired Sergio Rapu’s documentary which showed how climate change is affecting Rapa Nui. The following day there was a streaming with the director and other guests, including our director, Mahani Teave, who talked about environmental sustainability and many other themes.

Threatened by climate change and globalization, tiny Easter Island (Rapa Nui) is calling out to the rest of the world. Directed by native Rapanui filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu, Eating Up Easter explores that challenges facing the island and the intergenerational struggle to preserve the Rapanui culture and the environment from an increasingly modern society and flourishing tourist industry.

 

What can we learn from Rapa Nui to face this singular global problem? How can we collectively help our communities and our earth?

 

These questions are reflected on in the documentary EATING UP EASTER. “I am proud to know that my film has inspired so many people. During these dark times on our planet we need stories about hope and perseverance. My documentary shows how members of my community are using Rapa Nui cultural values to find ways to mitigate today’s pressing problems.”

 

The film is competing for the PBS Audience Award. We invite you to vote for it in the following link: https://www.pbs.org/independentlens/blog/vote-in-the-2019-2020-indie-lens-audience-awards/
