Vai is a portmanteau feature film made by nine female Pacific filmmakers, filmed in seven different Pacific countries: Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Kuki Airani (Cook Islands), Samoa, Niue and Aotearoa (New Zealand).
It is about the journey of Vai, played by a different indigenous actress in each of the Pacific countries. In each of these Pacific nations ‘vai’ means water.
Vai premiered at the 2019 Berlin Film Festival. The nine Pasifika women filmmakers are Sharon and Nicole Whippy, Becs Arahanga, Amberley Jo Aumua, Matasila Freshwater, Dianna Fuemana, Mīria George, ‘Ofa-ki Guttenbeil-Likiliki and Marina Alofagia McCartney.
There will be a Q & A after the movie from a couple of the women involved.
Tickets are $25 (including your selection of a snack) All proceeds will go to support our tamariki within Te Whānau Awahou Māori-Medium community at Newton Central School.
