More than just a postcard of iconic stone statues, Rapa Nui – also known as Easter Island – is a microcosm of our planet in flux. Natives of Rapa Nui are still grappling with the booming tourism trade that brings in money but also waste, as well as a changing climate that threatens the fragile ecosystem on the island. Rapanui filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu gives voice to his fellow islanders, featuring artists, ecologists and developers, who balance their strong cultural heritage with modern-day challenges. The film reflects the clash between growth and sustainability faced by communities worldwide.
