Raro on my mind
Rachel Reeves worked for three years as a journalist with Cook Islands News, and has remained a regular contributor to the paper with this column. She covers a range of topics relevant to the Cooks, together with her own musings and reflections.
In my effort to devote a column to each of the Film Raro productions, I’ve been privileged to watch and write about five outstanding films – films that evoke the sounds and smells of the Cook Islands, highlight the beauty of her people, and peer into sociological holes in her cultural fabric.
What struck me about Dog Save the Queen, before I even had a chance to reflect on the sociological issues it addresses, was the way it artfully incorporated everyday elements of the Cook Islands lifestyle.
