Moana With Sound
Directed by Robert Flaherty and Frances Flaherty (1926) and Monica Flaherty (1980)
2K Restoration Produced by Bruce Posner (2014)

In 1924, documentary film pioneers Robert and Frances Flaherty and family traveled to the Samoan island of Savaii to record the native life and make a film that would try to match the success of Nanook of the North. Restored in 2K with native sounds and traditional songs that Flahertys daughter recorded over a half-century after they shot it, Monica Flaherty's Moana with Sound is a beautiful work of docufiction and an important piece of film history.

New 2K Restoration now available on DCP!
