Marama is a powerful call from women of the Pacific – the voices of a vanishing world. The devastating effects of deforestation on their homelands and culture are brought startlingly to life through waiata, chants, dances and rituals gracefully and magically performed. As their story unfolds and as the women emerge from and disappear into their ever-changing environment, we are reminded of the ancient connection between a woman’s body and the earth and the strength and fragility of the ground upon which we all dwell.
Directed by Nina Nawalowalo.
