“Bad Ancestors” Represents Real Australia

Bad Ancestors gives us hope that more Pasifika stories (and ANY stories about diverse cultural backgrounds, TBH) can be told by the people who have lived them.

“The real key thing here is having [Pasifika people] in creative roles behind the camera, but not just as attachments — actually as lead creatives, head of department roles, above the line roles,” Vanilla Tupu said. “I think that such an important step is putting us in these positions and making us non-replaceable.”

Tupu added: “We’re absolutely essential to telling the narrative and pushing these stories forward for our community.”
