The co-director of the Academy Award-nominated film, "Tanna", says the film's first screening in a cyclone-devastated Vanuatu village was his proudest moment.
The entire cast of the film, which was shot on the southern Vanuatu island of Tanna, were locals from the Yakel tribe who had never seen, let alone acted in, a feature film.
The Romeo and Juliet-style love story about a young couple caught up in a tribal war and traditional customs is among the five nominations for best foreign language film at this year's Oscars.
The Australian-produced film, the first for co-directors Martin Butler and Bentley Dean, has already won several international awards.
But Mr Dean said bringing the film back to the Yakel in 2015 after cyclone Pam, via two bedsheets strung up under one of the last banyan trees, was a very special moment.
"It was not like a normal cinema going experience that is for sure because people would laugh and shout at the screen in recognition and you know sing along with the songs etc," he said.
"The very next day we got a very, a formal review from the chiefs of the film and they actually said we just want to inform you we actually consider this our film. And for us that was what it was all about."
