Pacific truths on screen (preview) The Age, 11 June 2011
Join us for the world premiere screening of short films from Melbourne's Pacific Islander community - a night of sights, sounds and storytelling Pasifika style! This evening is the culmination of Pacific Stories - a storytelling and film project that started in December 2010.
Participants have roots in many different Pacific nations - West Papua, Fiji, Tonga, PNG to name a few - and have come together in this project to share their stories through learning filmmaking techniques and the developing their own short film.
The project has been facilitated by documentary filmmaker Amie Batalibasi and cultural diversity educator Lia Pa’apa’a.
The screening will be followed by delicious Pacific food and entertainment - a night not to be missed! For more info visit pacificstories.wordpress.com or find Pacific Stories on Facebook.
Pacific Stories Screening is part of Emerge Festival 2011.
