The documentary will share the conversations around revival and transmission of knowledge from the perspectives of First Peoples Revivalists from Papua New Guinea, India, Philippines, Borneo, Taiwan, Inuit, Hawai’i and Aotearoa, New Zealand. The sequel, Tep Tok : Our Lines Connect Us will share the stories of four Melanesian women: Ranu was one of the featured women from the first Tep Tok from Gabagaba Village in Motu, Central province, PNG. This sequel will share her and her three daughters journey since the first Tep Tok.�Vasa a young woman of Papua New Guinean, Samoan and Australian heritage picking up the hand tapping tools and wearing the marks of her Mekeo Bubu (Grandmother) as a descendant of the missionaries that stopped the last woman being marked in Ranu’s village in PNG. Ema and Emmaline of Fijian heritage share their transitions in life, wearing full veiqia.
