Marovo Carver

Synopsis: 

Tasiro is a wood carver who expertly creates traditional sculptures, which represent the Solomon Islands culture and reflect the natural beauty of the environment that surrounds him. Dedicated to his craft, Tasiro uses carving as a means of supporting his family. Set in an island paradise and narrated exclusively in the Marovo language (with English subtitles), this is a gentle and uplifting story, told by Tasiro himself, that takes you deep into the World Heritage listed Marovo Lagoon. It captures an almost surreal moment in time as the past, present and future come together.
