About the film

‘Gafa: A Family called Samoa’, is the work of the Gafa Arts Collective . The tales presented in ‘ A Family called Samoa’ take their inspiration from many unsung acts of Samoan, human Heroism’ says Muliaumaseali’i.

Incarcerated by the German administration on a distant island, Samoan chief I’iga Pisa makes his daring escape by canoe. A leader of the Mau a Pule independence movement, his epic odyssey home to Samoa becomes our journey too as we use the arts to navigate through the post-colonial experience of identity, connection & emancipation.
