Tanna

June 24, 2017

Tanna is based on a true story from a Yakel village, where chiefs arrange marriages but two lovers choose a different path. Dain, the chief’s grandson, and Wawa want to marry each other, but the Yakel and Imedin chiefs tell Wawa that she must marry a man from the Imedin village. Only the young couple can bring peace to the Imedin and Yakel people in the lush, beautiful, and dangerous surroundings of their Australasian island home.  I enjoyed the supporting actors and the beautiful scenes in the island of Tanna.  I found the story compelling and saw universal themes of man’s treatment towards each other. This foreign language film deservedly won Best Foreign Film by the African-American Film Critics Association. Overall Rating: B+
