Event Details

À l’image de l’orateur tahu’a Thomas Taitoa dont le corps tatoué raconte l’amour de son fenua, de son histoire, de ses légendes, ce court-métrage raconte le bout de l’île de Tahiti, Te Pari. Taitoa connaît les puna, rochers indicateurs ancestraux des pêches à mener, et conte la légende du guerrier Turi face au poisson-guerrier Ume. Les Pari Pari Fenua sont des déclamations orales décrivant la toponymie, les éléments géographiques, et le relief de la terre et de la mer.
Pari Pari Fenua are oral declamations that describe toponymy, geographic features, and the shape of the land and the sea. Like the tahu’a orator Thomas Taitoa, whose tattooed body represents love for the land, its history and legends, this short film portrays the far end of Tahiti island, Te Pari. Taitoa knows the puna, ancestral indicator rocks that show where to fish and tells the legend of the warrior Turi who faces the warrior-fish Ume.
