Culture

Culture represents the soul of a people and to preserve it is to keep their identity alive.
The Rapanui people are a symbol of survival and struggle since it was marked by wars and about to become completely extinct. As essential characteristics, staying so isolated and in the midst of the Pacific Ocean not only surrounded it with mystery and strange legends but also facilitated the knowledge of its culture. Such reasons led Rapa Nui to become one of the most visited places in the world, with tourism being the main economic activity on the island.

 

“Rapa Nui VR” is the second, interactive VR doc, of the premiated 360º video “Iorana Rapa Nui”.
