REVIEW: Noted: A window into a displaced Pacific community
Banabans of Rabi: A Story of Survival, a documentary by Blessen Tom and Hele Ikimotu. 10 minutes. Pacific Media Centre, Auckland University of Technology.
ONE thought in particular is likely to linger in the mind of anyone who watches Bababans of Rabi—how can people who have endured such hardship remain so happy? Produced by Auckland University of Technology students Hele Ikimotu and Blessen Tom as part of the Pacific Media Centre’s 2018 Bearing Witness climate project, the documentary provides a window into the houses of the smiling people whose ancestors were forcibly displaced from their home island of Banaba in the 1940s.
