Tabu - 1931

F. W. Murnau's 1931 film made in cooperation with Robert Flaherty (of Nanook of the North fame) and shot on location in Tahiti.

Murnau had bought a yacht while in Hollywood and made a trip to Bali, encouraged by his love for Gaugain paintings and his own reading about Pacific islander culture. The trip expanded into a general tour of the South Pacific and then developed into a film project which allowed Murnau to marry together his two chief interests at the time.
