This film is based on a beloved classic legend from the island of Guam. It tells the story of how a young Chamoru girl finds the strength, wisdom, and courage to lead the women of Guåhan (Guam) into battle against a giant creature from the Marianas trench that is devouring their island home. Maisa is the first animated film to feature the indigenous Chamorro language of Guam.
Oceania on the Reel is co-sponsored by the UH Center for Pacific Islands Studies, Chaminade University’s Center for Teaching and Learning, and Bess Press.
