Tanna is the first feature shot entirely in the South Pacific nation of Vanuatu, whose customs andlifestyle have changed little for centuries. None of the “cast” had ever acted before, but astonishingly, they passionately and naturally re- created this real-life story from recent tribal history as if they had had years of training. Academy Awards: Best Foreign Language Film Nomination; additional 7 wins and 17 nominations.
