Friday night Summit movies

8 06 2011

The film component of the 2011 South Auckland Pacific Arts Summit was Square Eyes, a film evening presented by Leilani Kake at Manukau Institute of Technology’s newly formed Faculty of Creative Arts premises, the Manukau School of Visual Arts.

We took the opportunity to screen some of the videos that have been made for the Pacific Arts Summit by South Auckland-based Samoan film maker, Tanu Gago.

The screening of Dan Taulapapa McMullin‘s documentary, Ula: The Garland was the feature of the evening. Although a work in progress, this important piece of Pacific art history documents interviews with a huge range of Pacific creative practitioners from the US, Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa and Aotearoa.

Congratulations Leilani and all the young film makers who had their work shown for Square Eyes and vinaka vakalevu to Manukau Institute of Technology and students for their support!
