FILM: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS ONE THOUSAND ROPES
18 Jun 2017 | 1.30pm - 3.10pmBook Tickets
Middle-aged Maea is a gentle Samoan man in Wellington who helps bring babies into the world. It’s a far cry from the past when he was a tough fighter known as ‘The Lion’. Maea lost his family long ago and now lives with painful memories and a volatile spirit that lingers in his house and won’t let him forget. When his estranged daughter shows up pregnant and distressed Maea is presented with an opportunity to begin the healing process. The second film by Samoan New Zealander Tusi Tamasese (The Orator) is both tender and tough. The immediate and illuminating perspective is Samoan, but the broad and richly rewarding emotional terrain is universal.
