Pacific Islanders in Communications

Tama is the result of a unique collaboration between Deaf and hearing filmmakers. Tama is about a young Maori Deaf boy who tries to perform the traditional Maori war dance, the Haka, silently. He is isolated within his family where communication is challenging. On a near-fatal car trip, Tama has to confront his father and in his struggle, he begins to grow from an undervalued youth into a proud young man.
