Presented as part of Matala - A Celebration of Tongan Culture, join us for the second Auckland showing of ‘Tongan Ark’, a documentary directed by Paul Janman. This film screening is a fundraiser for the 'Atenisi Institute in Tonga and will be followed by Milolua Showcase.
Walking the line between culture and power, an Oceanic liberator gazes on the infinite as the world around him crumbles with change. Ancient philosophy, opera and Tongan culture come together in this intimate portrait of a teacher, his school and his people as they navigate a sea of repression and doubt in a small but troubled Pacific Island kingdom.
