Meet the artist - Rosanna Raymond
Born in New Zealand, the world famous artist always refers to her Samoan roots in her performances, poems, installations and fashion designs. Together with other artists she played an important role in the formation of an independent Pacific identity in art and fashion. One result is the jeans combination with tapa that is presented in “Made in Oceania” and that will also be the focus of the artist talk.

Long film night at the RJM: Cinema Oceania

Four very different movies on and from Oceania in original versions with English subtitles. The ethno-documentary “Stori Tumbuna: Ancestor’s Tales” allows for insights into the life, culture and mythologies of the Lak, a people living in the rain forests of Papua New Guinea. In the feature film “The Land Has Eyes”, young Fijian Viki fights for justice and freedom. The underdog story “O Le Tulafale – The Orator” deals with the short statured Saili and the traditionally highly estimated orator art in Samoa. As a special treat the New Zealand horror B-movie “Black Sheep” follows at midnight: Peaceful sheep mutate to woolly balls thirsting for blood.Tickets: 6 €, reduced 4 € per film
Film Night Special: 12 €, reduced 8 €
