POLYNESIA, THE QUEST FOR ORIGINS
The ancestry of the people of Tahiti
Where do the people from French Polynesia come from? South America, as the Kon-Tiki tried to prove? Alaska? South-East Asia?
This mystery is compounded by another more recent one. How did the numerous Chinese come to play a key role in the island demography?
Through Teiva's quest, a young Polynesian dancer, and Kyle's, a chinese boy in high school, this film is a fascinating ethnological study with a surprising result: even though everything seems to set them apart, they are actually cousins since their ancestors came at different times from... China !
