Reel Asian 2022 - Carolyn Talks 'Tehura' with Filmmaker Wei Li

For the 2022 Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival, I spoke with storyboard artist and writer Wei Li about his directorial debut with the animated short film Tehura, which pays homage to the culture of dance and music of the Tahitian Islands, through the character of Tehura. The film features themes of colonial oppression and colonization, and the reclamation of Tehura's cultural identity, and ownership of her body through the traditional dance of Ote'a.
