North American Premiere - In attendance of the Producer Marie-Pierre Bousquet.

Poet and songwriter-performer Paul Wamo (born 1981) is a major figure in the New Caledonia art scene. An energetic and poetic wordsmith, Wamo shares his unshakeable attachment to his birthplace. This hybrid documentary navigates between scenic view, postcard, music video, and brochure, presenting an artist who speaks out with spirit and determination on the problems that persist in his changing homeland. Both original and entertaining, this film takes a realistic look at this Oceanian country.
