About the Festival: The Arkhaios Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Film Festival is an annual event, part of the Archaeology Month, taking place in the United States. It is intended to be an educational event to showcase the discovery of past cultures gained from archaeological research, and illustrated by documentary films. It also encourages initiatives and exchanges between the different actors of the world of archaeological films whose productions, often of great artistic and scientific quality, are unknown and suffer from the weakness of the traditional distribution channels. It is, finally, designed to trigger the interest of local film-makers to apply their art to history

About Eating Up EasterNative Rapanui (Easter Island) filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu narrates to his son the modern dilemma of their people who risk losing everything to the globalizing effects of tourism. The film follows four islanders, descendants of the ancient statue builders, who are working to tackle the consequences of their rapidly developing home. Mama Piru leads recycling efforts to reduce trash, Mahani and Enrique use music to reunite their divided community, and Sergio tries to understand the motivations of his father who embraces the advantages of building new businesses. These stories intertwine to reveal the complexities of development and the contradictions within us all as we are faced with hard choices about our planet’s future.
