Still Here

In 1971, 45 per cent of Auckland’s Pasifika population lived in the inner city. Now, they’re fewer than 2 per cent.

Through the eyes of Pacific youth and their families, a four-part docu-series by @Re: Docs with the support of NZ On Air, celebrates the small but mighty Pasifika community in inner-city Auckland who have remained despite decades of rampant gentrification.

Each episode weaves intergenerational stories of family, community and culture dispelling the myth that “all the Islanders have left.”.
