:Ma'ohi Nui, in the Heart of the Ocean My Country Lies

Belgium, 2018, 113 min

Tahiti, French Polynesia. Between the runway of the international airport and a small mound of earth lies a district called the Flamboyant. Over there, one says "district " as not to say "shantytown". There is another face of contemporary colonisation born of the thirty years of French nuclear tests in Polynesia. By confronting the Ma'ohi spirit with its nuclear history and its fractured existence, the film shows the face of contemporary colonisation and the vital impetus of a people trying not to forget themselves and who, silently, are seeking the path of independence.
