The Land Has Eyes

Pear ta ma 'on maf (Vilsoni Hereniko, 2004) aka The Land Has Eyes, prod. Merata Mita; Sapeta Taito, Rena Owen, John Fatiaki

One of a kind: possibly the only feature from Fiji, and certainly the only one from Rotuma (a remote island which is technically part of Fiji). A girl comes of age. I suppose it's inevitable it will be compared with Whale Rider (Niki Caro, 2002). Well, it occurred to me.
