TITLE: Kava : [videorecording] the drink of the gods / a film by Thorolf Lipp.
PUBLISHED: Fiji : University of the South Pacific ; 1998.
DESCRIPTION: 1 videocassette (90 min.) : sd., col. ; 1/ 2 in.
NOTES: Extra copies.
NOTES: This film is a journey through Oceania with its stunning cultural and natural beauty and richness. It gives insight into kava rituals as they are carried out today. But kava is more than just a cultural relic; it is becoming a symbol of identity for many Pacific Islanders as for Oceania as a whole. Through kava, a drink made from the root of a pepper plant, friendships are formed, visitors welcomed, and chiefly authority sanctioned. Today, kava is increasingly bought, sold and consumed within non-ritual contexts. It is extracted, packaged, and produced for global markets. But for many Pacific Islanders, kava will always remain: The drink of the Gods.
