The NFSA is proud to present the breathtaking Tanna, the film that has delivered Australia's first ever nomination for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards.
Set on a remote Pacific Island, covered in rainforest and dominated by an active volcano, this heartfelt story tells of a sister's loyalty, a forbidden love affair and the pact between the old ways and the new.
