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.
