Samoans celebrate their rich cultural heritage on this memorable 50th anniversary of their Independence. This DVD also includes historic sequences from the 10th anniversary of Independence in 1972.
Samoa now celebrates the Anniversary on the 1st of June each year. SAMOA – THE JOURNEY captures the energy and pride that Samoans display in this very special anniversary, 50 years on.
SAMOA – THE JOURNEY also reveals less well known corners of Samoa which highlight the nation’s close affinity with the sea and its strong communal life. Music composed by Igelese Ete reflects the voyaging motifs: the ocean, va’a, sun and the stars – and Samoa’s journey since 1962.Format: DVD Running time: 120 minutes
Featured stories on this DVD
The winning fautasi at Samoa's 50th Anniversary of Independence celebrations was Segavao III, skippered by Vaimasenu'u Zita Martel. Most of the 45 Don Bosco crew are between 16 and 20 years of age and they won by a clear margin of several boat lengths. This fautasi was built in Samoa in the parish of Si'usega and was designed by Zita. The design is based on the traditional paopao, Samoan outrigger.
