In this thrilling film based on true events, Wawa—a young girl from one of the last traditional tribes in the South Pacific—falls in love with her chief's grandson, Dain. When an intertribal war escalates, Wawa is unknowingly betrothed as part of a peace deal. The young lovers run away, but are pursued by enemy warriors intent on killing them. They must choose between their hearts and the future of the tribe, while the villagers must wrestle with preserving their traditional culture and adapting it to the increasing demands for individual freedom.

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, however, he left behind only 30 completed pages of his manuscript. Now, in this incendiary new documentary, filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. Presented with Maine NAACP Portland Branch
