Fabulously rich storytelling from the South Pacific: the imaginary figure Vai is every woman of every age. A beautifully crafted portmanteau feature by nine women filmmakers.
This beautiful-looking anthology was shot in seven different Pacific countries – Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Kuki Airani (Cook Islands), Samoa, Niue and Aotearoa (New Zealand). In each location, a different Indigenous actress plays Vai at singular stages in her life, over a single day: beginning as a seven-year-old girl in Fiji (Mereani Tui Matanisiga) and ending in New Zealand as a great-grandmother (Hintu Dell) to the next generation.
Producers Kerry Warkia and Kiel McNaughton (the team that created Waru
) have assembled an impressive team of directors and actors to deliver a delightful, passionate portrait of an environment, culture, community and its womenfolk.Save over 20% on regular ticket prices by buying a Flexipass!Please note online bookings end Thu 29 Aug, 5pm.
