Tanna is a 2015 Australian-Ni-Vanuatu film set on the island of Tanna in the South Pacific, depicting the true story of a couple who decided to marry for love, rather than obey their parents’ wishes. Starring Marie Wawa and Mungau Dain, the film is based on an actual marriage dispute.
Tanna was the first film to be shot entirely on location in Vanuatu. The film won the Audience Award Pietro Barzisa at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival. It was selected as the Australian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th Academy Awards, and was nominated for the award in January 2017.
