More than just a picture postcard of iconic stone statues, Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island, is a microcosm of a planet in flux. Native Rapanui grapple with a booming tourism trade that rakes in money, but brings about a changing climate that threatens the fragile ecology on the island. In Eating Up Easter, filmmakers Sergio Mata’u Rapu and producer Elena Rapu introduce viewers to artists, ecologists, and developers who balance their strong cultural heritage with modern-day challenges.
This event is presented in partnership with Amarillo Convention and Visitor's Council, Amarillo Museum of Art, Don Harrington Discovery Center, and Nikki and Dusty Green with TwofortheRoad.com, with support from ITVS, PBS, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Laura W.
