“The apogee of the art of the silent film”~Lotte Eisner
Aroview: A beautifully filmed romantic tragedy based on a simple Pacific island folk tale. Poetry and sensuality is startlingly evoked through the play of light, rhythm and composition. Co-scripted and co-produced by Robert J. Flaherty.
Newly restored to pre-Paramount Murnau-approved longer (and uncensored) version of the film.
