For My Father's Kingdom

1h 37m Documentary 2019

AroView: Director Vea Mafile’o crafts this deeply personal documentary portrait of her father, a Tongan patriarch whose dedication to pouring large amounts of money into an annual church celebration called Misinale raises questions about tradition and modernity among his South Auckland family members.

Offers a rich view of how contemporary secular families deal with the rigours of devout Christian tithing, as well as a unique insight into traditional Tongan culture.

“A tender, generous, at times almost unbearably intimate story of a person – of a whole world – so often obscured.” ~ James Robins,
