Tahiti in blossom

Another wonderful archival film from ICA .



  1. Mikey, sorry I have been recently absent from the online community. I love your posts; I have to ask where I can find these old movies, though. I would really like to screen them and see how the stereotype of the Polynesian (whether as barbarous or Noble Savage) has evolved in the eyes of modern cinema. Let me know your thoughts!

  2. yeah i hear ya – i have a few poly centred documentries on the drawing table so to speak – one day i will get it all happening!

    though check this site out – though it is specifically TAHITIAN!

    ICA –

    It is in french so use bable fish (altavista) or go google and click on translate!

    The Bishop Museum has thousands of archival film!
