Long Lost Sons

Television (Full Length) – 2004

The Fa'afoi's are actually Tokelaun. But like a lot of New Zealand-born Islanders, the boys have never been home. They reckon their time to return home is now.
– Narrator David Fane
What a great little documentary. It was informative, both historically and geographically, and the Fa'afoi family were totally charming, giving what seemed to be a very honest and human reaction to the emotional journey home.
– Jane Bowron in The Dominion Post, 4 May 2004, Page B4
The last time Meti and Amosa were this close to home, they were nervous school kids being sent away for reasons they didn't completely understand. Back then they had no idea it would be over 35 years before they came back.
– Narrator David Fane
It'd be a wicked place to grow up aye.
– Jason Fa'afoi in Tokelau
