Description: The first Easter Island documentary, filmed in 1935 when the Belgian naval ship Mercator came to accumulate Drs. Henri Lavacherry and Alfred Métraux, who had arrived six months before to carry out archaeological and ethnological work. The film, directed with melodramatic gusto and featuring a full orchestral score by Maurice Jaubert (who also did the narration), shows islanders, the monuments, and a public dance. A theme of decay and decadence characterizes the film, the motif portrayed gruesomely by extensive close-ups of the inhabitants of the leper colony there at the time. The movie suited a romantic photo of a mysterious lost civilization, the survivors eking out a pitiful existence on a barren rock. (Grant McCall)
