Tanna, an extraordinary Australia/Vanuatu co-production, is a Romeo and Juliet story set in one of the world's last true tribal societies. It is the first feature film shot entirely in the South Pacific nation of Vanuatu, in a village called Yakel. The people of this remote community, high in the mountain rainforests near a spitting volcano, truly wear grass skirts and penis sheaths and have rejected colonial and Christian influences in favor of their traditional and pure "Kastom" system of laws and beliefs. Their customs and lifestyle have changed little for centuries. Before Tanna, they had never before seen a movie or a camera, yet welcomed the filmmakers to live with the tribe for seven months where they absorbed stories and observed ceremonies, with the input and collaboration of the local people. None of the 'cast' had ever acted before, but astonishingly, they passionately and naturally re-created this real-life story from recent tribal history as if they had had years of training. Tanna is a spectacularly lush and exotic film that is Australia's submission for the Academy Awards Best Foreign Film of 2017. The movie recently won the Directors Guild of Australia award for Best Director. Earlier, the movie premiered at the Venice Film Festival this past fall, where it won the Audience Award in the International Critics Week sidebar as well as the Best Cinematography prize.

Cane Toads: The Conquest (2012)
The first 3D film shot in Australia, Cane Toads The Conquest is director Mark Lewis' sequel of sorts to his 1987 cult classic Cane Toads: An Unnatural History, which broke the nature film mold wide open - not only due to its irreverent attitude, but because, unlike most popular documentaries about animals, it was not about a cuddly, endangered species. On the contrary, it was about a feared, reviled, some would even go so far as to say ugly, swamp-dweller run amok. This time around, Lewis takes a giant leap forward as he revs up the technology, giving us, as he puts it 'Avatoad' (in homage to a famous 3D milestone) to once again track the unstoppable march of the cane toad across the Australian continent, now occupying nearly a third of the country, and continuing to spread and evolve into a bigger, faster, even more robust creature. -- (C) Rialto

Buried Prayers (2011)
In April and May 1943, thousands of survivors of the Warsaw ghetto uprising were held in the Maidanek death camp. Realizing they were being selected for death, these innocent families chose to surreptitiously bury the personal objects in their possession six inches beneath the earth's surface in a collective act of courage, defiance and hope. Based upon unique witness testimony, an international team of survivors and experts from Australia, USA, Germany, Israel, Italy, and England were able to organize an archeological expedition to unearth these relic keepsakes that have remained hidden for 63 years. Over 80 significant pieces of jewelry and other items were recovered and deposited with the Maidanek State Museum, making it the largest reported recovery of valuables in a death camp to date. -- (C) Official Site
