Wild and Scenic Film Festival – Eating Up Easter Screening 2

01/19/2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm PST

Mama Piru from Eating Up Easter documentary

Plastic Oceans International Representatives will be at the Festival.

Native Rapanui (Easter Island) filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu narrates to his son about the modern dilemma of their people, who risk losing everything to the globalizing effects of tourism. Eating Up Easter 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.
