THE LAND HAS EYES is a captivating saga of ones girl's mustering up the heroic spirit of her heritage to confront the modern world. Set on the remote island of Rotuma in the South Pacific,it's a visually entrancing work, capturing the pristine beauty of those luscious climes and cluing us in to a cuture that has been defiled in many ways by European colonisation. At once illuminating ethnography of a remarkable people. THE LAND HAS EYES is most satisfyingly a tale of truimph and assertion. It focuses on Vicki (Sapeta Taito), an industrious Rotuman teen who aspires to someday win a scholarship to Fiji. Strong-minded, which is not considered a virtue by the women in her family as well as her peers, Vicki takes it upon herself to do what her more traditional parents cannot accomplish. In essence, she crosses cultural boundaries when she stands up for her father's good name, and she transcends female expectations when she strives to achieve her highly personal goals.
