Special screenings of this documentary for Niuean Language Week
Children of migrants share a common story. The first generation born in a new country live between two cultures — the land of their birth and the culture of their parents' homeland.
'Daughters of the Pacific' focuses on four young Pacific women — Emeline Afeaki, Pule Puletaua, Lanni Liuvaie, and Louise Tu'u — whose parents come from villages in Samoa, Tonga, and Niue.
This documentary examines their struggle to combine two cultures and to find their place and identity in New Zealand. (45 minutes, Harker Lee Lewes Films, Auckland)
