Moana With Sound

Moana With Sound

Director: Monica Flaherty, Frances Flaherty, Robert Flaherty
Year: 2015

Seeking to make another "Nanook of the North", Robert Flaherty chose Samoa for the docu-fiction film "Moana" in 1924. Fifty years later, Flaherty's daughter Monica returned to Samoa to produce a unique sound version. In 1924, documentary film pioneers Robert and Frances Flaherty and family traveled to the Samoan island of Savaii to record the native life and make a film that would try to match the success of Nanook of the North. Restored in 2K with native sounds and traditional songs that Flahertys daughter recorded over a half-century after they shot it, Monica Flaherty's Moana with Sound is a beautiful work of docufiction and an important piece of film history.
