Malama is one of six short films that screened as part of Tala Pasifika, a groundbreaking Pacific Island drama series that screened on TV One in 1996.
Malama tells the story of Malama, a young girl who lost her eyesight in a car crash that killed her mother. Unable to see the world around her, Malama has gained access to the spirit world. Using thse visions and her young brother's descriptions of Jesus, she creates a world of hope in which she and Pele are prince and princess. It's a world very different to the real one she lives in where her father struggles to cope with being a solo father and lashes out at his children when things overwhelm him.
