dc.description.abstract <p>WHEN I SET OUT TO MAKE A DOCUMENTARY concerning an invasive plant species on Easter I land, it soon became obvious that many people are misinformed about the island and its history. Many believe that the island is treeless and the ancient people mysteriously vanished, leaving only the great statues for Europeans to find (Easterbrook 2005:10).
