Teine Sā - The Ancient Ones

Web, 2021

Horror series Teine Sā - The Ancient Ones features Pasifika talent on both sides of the camera. Each episode involves a sacred spirit (including Samoa's teine sā) who encounters a different woman. The tales mix mythology and modern issues like bullying, identity issues and cultural respect. The cast includes established names like Frankie Adams and Joe Naufahu; the directors mix emerging talents (e.g. Matasila Freshwater) with the more experienced (Mario Gaoa). Teine Sā was kickstarted by Coconet TV's Lisa Taouma.
