Nominated by Australia for a foreign-language Oscar, the film features 
members of the Yakel tribe on the island of Tanna who live according to 
customs that probably go back 3,300 years when the island chain of 
Vanuatu was settled by distant relatives of the Australian aborigines. 
The Yakel will remind you of the Yanomami, especially with the naked 
tribesmen’s only clothing a “penis shaft”. In a hilarious scene early in 
the film, a young boy is mortified to discover that a girl named Selin 
has run off with his shaft while he was swimming as a prank.
