Cracks in the Mask

Synopsis

The Torres Strait Islanders in far north Australia were the only people in the Pacific to make elaborate turtleshell masks. Now they have none left; they are all in foreign museums. The film shows that the thickest of masks cracks when a descendant of the original owners enter museum.
