Tupaia's Endeavour

1h 59m Documentary, History 2020
NZIFF 2020

The first arrival of Europeans in the Pacific is fascinatingly explored from a Polynesian perspective in charting the story of Tahitian high priest and navigator Tupaia, on his journey aboard Cook’s HMS Endeavour.

“Tupaia’s Endeavour retells what we think is a familiar story, but from the point of view of the Pacific people who lived it, and of their contemporary descendants who seek a deeper understanding of their ancestor, and his role in shaping history.” ~Marten Rabarts, NZIFF
