Portraits of Poly Pks | Pift Pacific Islanders in Film & TV

PIFT recently supported The Coconet TV in the production of a new online series called Portraits of Poly Pks.

The short documentary series has been released on the on-line portal and looks into the lives of pastor’s kids within the Aotearoa Pacific community.

“The issues that these generations of PK’s face are many – rebelling against restrictions, living within rigid bounds of model expectation, facing community animosity are part and parcel of the PK life. Yet there are some heart-rending stories of finding peace and happiness in these diverse personal portraits. The series gives an objective glimpse into the role that religion plays in Pacific communities and how it underpins much of how Pacific people are shaped. These five portraits of a PK are wonderful flavors of a unique lifestyle that has a special myriad

of pros and cons.”
