A deeply moving film about connections, redemption and new beginnings, One Thousand Ropes is a powerful character drama about a father reconnecting with his youngest daughter and together, putting to rest the ghosts that haunt them. She arrives vulnerable: badly beaten and heavily pregnant. He struggles on one hand, with the temptation to take revenge in the way he knows best, and on the other, to build a new family and companionship so desperately missing from his life.

“This character-driven drama is a fascinating mix of social-realism and supernatural, and is at times is hard to watch. Then there's Tamasese's ability to draw us into a world brimming with culture, complex characters, sadness and hope - a world that lingers in the mind days after viewing.” — Francesca Rudkin, NZ Herald, 23 March 2017.

This event is part of Siapo Cinema 2017: An Oceania Film Festival which is on 20 to 30 September. This film will also be in our regular cinema schedule in the first week of October.
