REVIEW: Noted: Bold educational portrait
AbstractReview of Tongan Ark, directed by Paul Janman. Public Films, 2012. tonganark,net
Tongan Ark tells a remarkable story, about a remarkable man, Futa Helu, and his one-of-a-kind, bold, unconventional university called 'Atenisi', the Tongan world for Athens. Ancient philosophy, opera and Tongan culture come together in this intimate portrait of a teacher, his school and his people as they navigate a sea of repression and doubt in a small but troubled Pacific Island kingdom.
