A heart-breaking story detailing Faʻamoana John Luafutu’s time as a state ward. Using his voice for the voiceless, Luafutu vitally brings this story to light. A must-watch for all New Zealanders.
The product of a long-term collaboration between Nina Nawalowalo’s theatre company The Conch, Fa’amoana John Luafutu and the Luafutu Aiga. The film blends dramatised sequences and powerful interviews with beautiful aerial and underwater photography – translating Nawalowalo’s celebrated visual storytelling to the screen for the first time. -NZIFF
