      2019 DFF Eating Up Easter Driftless Film Festival Saturday, November 2nd 11:30 Mineral Point Opera House

      Eating Up Easter will be screener at the 10th annual Driftless Film Festival on Saturday, November 2nd 11:30 at the Mineral Point Opera House. The iconic statues and sensationalized mysteries of Easter Island (Rapa Nui) have drawn the interest of the world for centuries, attracting curious visitors to its shores. Today, this tiny, barren island is experiencing an economic boon as tourism skyrockets. Yet the indigenous culture and the islands fragile environment are suffering. Directed by native Rapanui filmmaker Sergio Matau Rapu, Eating Up Easter explores the dilemma his people are facing. Crafted as a story passed down to his newborn son, Sergio intertwines the authentic history of the island with the stories of four islanders. In their own voices, these Rapanui reveal the reality of modern life and the actions they are taking to preserve their culture and environment amidst rapid development.


      Cost: 10.00
