Featuring: John-Paul Foliaki, Dimitrius Schuster-Koloamatangi, Ilaisaane Green
Language: English, Tongan (subtitled)
Running Time: 85 min
Overview:When Maka and Veni fail in getting tickets for the most important game of their lives, they decide to form a traditional Tongan marching band, just so they can go to the game. No one in their band of misfits knows anything about marching and they practice using plastic bottles and tin cans for instruments. It is a complete shambles and if they can't get their act together, they will embarrass their entire Tongan community in front of the world. However, what starts out as just a cynical scam to see a rugby game becomes a journey of self-discovery in which Maka and Veni will learn the importance of their Tongan culture.

Covid and film availability
Due to cinema closures in countries affected by Covid, the majority of new films are now being released on internet streaming services. Many films are not released on DVD for commercial sale.
This results in difficulties for film societies such as ours, with licenses not available for public screening of some films. We endeavour to work hard to find contemporary films available for screening.
Please note there is a possibility that films may be postponed and replaced at short notice due to these Covid related difficulties.
