This film traces the extraordinary and colorful story of the Scott family, the political crises that have marked Fijiís recent history, the killings and their aftermath, and the complex mix of tribal authority, ethnicity, Christianity, and democracy that exist in the postcolonial Pacific. Filmmaker Annie Goldson (University of Auckland), Vilsoni Hereniko (University of Hawai'i at Manoa), and Tarcicius Kabutaulaka (University of Hawai'i at Manoa) will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterward.
