Vive La France
Helgi Felixson and Titti Johnson | Norway, Finland, Iceland, Sweden| 2014 | 82 min
Last time the Mururoa atoll gained the attention was when French president Jacques Chirac decided that nuclear testing in French Polynesia should go on. This decision met with massive resistance and the tests ended for good the following year. The film visits the nearby island of Tureia to meet Kua and Teariki, that have their dream crushed when unable to secure a loan from the bank, due to the risk that the Mururoa atoll may implode, setting off a devastating tsunami. Vive La France reveals the willful existence of a small island community, while delivering a grave lesson on the ecological consequences of nuclear testing and the political ramifications of French colonialism in Polynesia.
