The iconic and sensationalized “mysteries” of Easter Island have drawn the interest of the world for centuries. Today, this tiny, barren island is experiencing an economic boon as tourism skyrockets. Yet the indigenous culture and island’s fragile environment are suffering. Eating Up Easter, directed by native Rapanui filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu, explores the dilemma his people face today. This personal and affecting documentary tackles the universal complexities of balancing growth and sustainability faced by the Rapanui people. In English, French, Rapanui, and Spanish with English subtitles.
