INTERDEPENDENCE is a unique film composed by eleven short-movies. Started in 2018, the project explores in a sensible and creative way the position of humankind and nature. The key stories illustrated by the eleven internationally recognized filmmakers reflect the intertwined relations between human society and natural environment that are aggravated by climate change on multiple dimensions and scales, hinting at possible solutions.
KA MURA KA MURI is one of the eleven short-movies.
The film follows a boy across time: from settlement of the island by Polynesian explorers, to the European impact during the missionary period in the 19th Century, to recent history when the international airport was built by the American military during World War II, through the current tourist era, projecting into the future where the island’s ecosystem has been destroyed and turning back into the past again. He is both participant and observer, living his life and standing outside his own time to watch as human forces create rapid destruction in one short life- time. Ultimately the film is a call to action, urging everyone to take immediate steps to save this precious ecosystem before it is lost forever.
