Description:In 1987, on the Faaite atoll in the Tuamotu Archipelago, six people were burnt alive in the name of God. This unprecedented massacre took place on a tiny island with only 350 inhabitants. It left behind deep wounds and brought an unknown part of the history of Polynesia to the forefront, a light and dark side to a reputedly heavenly universe. Still today questions remain unanswered. What really happened in Faaite? In French with English subtitles.
