Provides a terrific showcase for unsung film-making and acting talent, with the likes of Betsy Luitolo, Agnes Pele and Evotia-Rose Araiti surely destined for bright futures.

It isn’t just gorgeous, it feels spiritually poignant, a reaffirmation of cultural identity and a showcase of the strength of women’s stories.

Although it may lack the intense urgency of Waru, Vai carries an equally strong emotional resonance, and functions as a similarly effective argument for extending cinema's narrative scope beyond the typically narrow range it has long inhabited.

You may view Vai’s merits through its empowerment of brown women – and that’s valid, incredibly so – but it’s also simply a lovely film.
