The people of Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island, are fighting for their cultural heritage, for job opportunities, and for an island clear of trash. Meet a local ecologist, two musicians, and the island’s first Indigenous governor as they work to balance growth with sustainability on an island overflowing with tourists and growing piles of litter.

Join us for a Q&A with filmmakers Sergio Mata'u Rapu and Elena Kouneski Rapu after the screening!
