Liliu: the courtroom drama set in post-WWI Samoa

Set in colonial Samoa, short film Liliu tells the story of a court interpreter who risks everything to help a wrongfully convicted chief. Filmmaker Fa’alava’au Jeremiah Tauamiti hopes people will remember the leadership roles Pacific women held before colonial times.

Liliu is screening as part of the NZIFF Ngā Whanaunga Māori Pasifika Shorts.
