“Fa’alele lau pepe – Fly your butterfly.”
It is said that at the right time, the beating of butterfly wings in one place can cause a tornado in another.

When a young fa’afafine is rejected by society, she finds strength in identity through the spirits of her ancestors. With the flick of the fan, the flight of spirit, fa’afafine sisters Fine Fatale turns forbidden to familiar. The film celebrates a new wave of young fem-gems empowering others to be who they are and keep dancing that ‘forbidden dance’.

Fangirl comes from the creators of The F Word and Poi – Hopes and Dreams, winners at NZ Web Fest in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
