On Rapa Nui (Easter Island), the most isolated community in the Pacific uses lessons learned from their past to solve environmental and social challenges brought on by booming tourism and rapid development.

Rigoberta Menchú 2nd Prize to Eating Up Easter by Sergio Mata'u Rapu In a cinematic letter to his young child, the director tells the story of the territory of the ancestors, and the ancient and recent history of the island of Rapanui. Recently taken over by mass tourism, the island must recover its original identity, strengthening its language and culture, and find a path to development that respects the environment. A message to posterity formulated as an appeal to today's world, for this holistic vision that sees an island as a microcosm of the planet in danger.
