Her practice aims to document and share community stories, generating a living archive. Her kaupapa has been described as one that is based on koha – often made with and gifted back to the communities she is engaged with.
Tuafale shares an insight on her 2 part documentary short called Chasing Chaka 2018: A Healing Adventure (a rough cut) created during her Fale-ship residency.
Part 1 of Tuafale’s documentary short – Chasing Chaka 2018: A Healing Adventure (a rough cut).
“It was an enjoyably intense experience. I was glad to be home to focus on different aspects of the build & the many choices which shrunk as time disappeared. Reflecting on my builds – there’s been a definite covid tinge to them.Having a week to focus on one project has been a gratifying gift.”– Tuafale Tanoa’i
