La tête d’Ataï

Director : Medhi Lallaoui


In June 1878, a great Kanak uprising broke out in response to the confiscation of indigenous land and the relocation of the tribes in reservations. Chief Atai, one of the key figures leading this rebellion, was killed in September and his head was sent to France. While this strong symbol of Kanak resilience went missing a few years later, Atai’s memory shines forth at the start of the 21st century.
