A 1922 film called 'The Headless Horseman' was the earliest motion picture to use panchromatic film, although 'Moana' was still a pioneer in the use of the once-difficult to handle film emulsion. See more »
Customs of Polynesian natives on a Samoan island, centered on the daily life and on the coming of age ceremony of the young man Moana. It reconstructs Polynesian culture before the coming of Western culture, though iron blades are used. Daily tasks like cooking, fishing, hunting and gathering are most of the picture.
Mainly interesting for the material settings. Flaherty treats the Samoan life as almost that of a paradise - the only discomforts being wild boar and the pain of tattooing.
