The “cast” of “Tanna” are the natives of the South Pacific nation of Vanuata. Shown here are Dain and Wawa.
Saturday, Feb. 10, 3 p.m. & 5:15 p.m.—WOODSTOCK— The eighth annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at the Billings Farm & Museum will feature the award-winning documentary, “Tanna,” on Saturday, Feb. 10, at 3 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. All films are open to the public and accessible to people with disabilities. Reservations are strongly recommended.
“Tanna” is the first feature shot entirely in the South Pacific nation of Vanuatu, whose customs and lifestyle have changed little for centuries. 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.
Tickets prices are $9-$11. Billings Farm & Museum is located one-half mile north of the Woodstock village green on Vermont Route 12. For more information, visit billingsfarm.org/filmfest or call 802-457-2355.
