A Samoan community group, Omai Fa’atasi, presents the problems facing youth in the growing Samoan community in Los Angeles. Among the first independent media productions to bring the experiences of Pacific Islanders to light, OMAI FA’ATASI: SAMOA MO SAMOA is supplemented by intricate watercolor paintings by local artist Ron Battle which illustrate the history of Samoa’s fractious relationship with the West, and by direct and illuminating interviews with the community group’s youth clients. Running time: 30 min.
