Director: Jacques NAVARRO-ROVIRA - 52 minutes

In Anaa, an atoll in the Tuamotu Archipelago in French Polynesia, on February 8, 1906, it was a tragedy. A cyclone of unprecedented violence will lift waves of 15 meters that will sweep the island. 95 people leave their lives there. Rémy Canavesio, a young geologist a bit adventurous, wants to know what happened that day. He's going to interrogate the men and make them talk about the stones. He wants to understand how these climatic phenomena affect these islands that are at full water, and thus be able to provide solutions for the protection of island populations.

Opanipani, prisoner in Tahiti.

Director: Jacques NAVARRO-ROVIRA - 52 minutes

Under the sun of paradise, one of the worst prisons in the republic and one of the most modern. Tatutu's new prison welcomes its first residents. This is a total change for them: individual cells, leisure spaces, pilot reintegration program... This seems idyllic, and yet this bastion representative of the French state must ensure its mission taking into account the specificity of Polynesian culture.

The stars will do

Director: Eliane KOLLER - 52 minutes

This is the stories of effeminate young 'men'. Equipped with small cameras, they become the directors of their own quest for identity. We live the daily life of these extraordinary characters through their own eyes, sharing their joys, their hopes... but also their disillusionment with an integration into modern society not as assimilated as one might think.

Marae, the world of living stones

Director: Eliane KOLLER - 52 minutes

There was a time when in Polynesia men lived in unity with the elements, the stones and the afterlife. This relationship manifested itself during ceremonies on the Marae, open-air stone temples. Today, these sites are the last vestiges of this period. Let's go on a journey in a fascinating culture, unfortunately disappearing.

About us

Oceania movie

Based in French Polynesia, Oceania film was born in 2013 from the desire of a producer/director and a director/ethnologist to combine their skills to bring oceania's stories to life. We take a modern look at Oceanian culture and offer a real vision of life in the Pacific Basin. Combined with the past, the present, or evoking the future, our films are always stories of men.
