We are on the island of Tanna, a part of Vanuatu, an archipelago in Melanesia. Strange rites are performed (the hoisting of an incongruous flag) and Sibylline words are trotted out. On the horizon of these scenes: the practice of the “cargo cult”. (…) No analysis is made here, no desire to clarify – quite to the contrary, here we are just plunged into that universe. (Jean-Pierre Rehm)
