The Island In Me is an award-winning feature taking the viewer to a unique place never before captured in film. With only four hundred inhabitants and ten metres above sea level, the atoll has stories to tell. The film follows two women - Amelia Hokulea Borofsky and Johnny Frisbie - who grew up here and return home after decades away to find the atoll, and themselves, forever changed. They return to reconnect - with emotion, celebration, and a sense of belonging. Filmmaker Gemma Cubero del Barrio also weaves in her own intimate story. Winner Special Jury Prize at the 19th Festival International du Film Documentaire Océanien FIFO Tahiti.
