Hotu Painu

Television (Full Length) – 1988

The old people say Moruroa was a very beautiful island. Now the homeland of those who gave life to me has been desecrated.
– Tiare Rua
When Europeans first came here the people named them 'Hotu Painu' after the poisonous fruit which drifts on the ocean from island to island. But now it is us who have become 'Hotu Painu' and foreigners occupy our land.
– Tahitian Youth Worker Rafiu Tehiva
