Movie Info

In a cinematic letter to his son, native Rapanui (Easter Island) filmmaker Sergio Mata'u Rapu provides a global wake up call from the remote pacific. His film explores how their people -- descendants of the ancient statue builders -- are facing the consequences and dilemmas of rapid development of their home, and are recycling traditions in a bid for environmental sustainability.

Critic Reviews for Eating Up Easter

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • Ultimately, the doc doesn't offer a comprehensive look at the problems Rapa Nui faces today, and it certainly doesn't dig into the complaints Rapu has with some historians' account of how the island became a treeless plain.

  • The mindfulness instilled in receptive audience members could very well be the film's greatest achievement, and makes one wonder how Rapa Nui's citizens are doing right now.

    April 26, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's clear there is no shortage of important stories for Rapu to tell, and his worst offense may be trying to tell them all in a single film.

    April 25, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Director Rapu beautifully designs Eating Up Easter as a story told to his newborn son about his family's origins in Rapa Nui.

    April 25, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Eating Up Easter is deft in the way it explores ... finding a balance between vital tradition and the unstoppable momentum of modernity.
