2017 Oscar Nominee - Best Foreign Language Film

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.

"Tanna is a movie in which every single shot is picturesque, and more than a few of them are genuinely beautiful." — Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
