Two strangers strike up an unusual conversation in a cemetery as they cope with the loss of their mothers.
A Samoan man grapples to come to terms with his mother’s death and her burial wishes. A visit to the cemetery leads him to a blunt and eye-opening conversation with a Maori woman also grieving the loss of her mother. Moa Ma Le Pinko (Chicken and Bingo) takes a comedic look at death, grief and moving forward. Created in 72 hours for the Native Slam III filmmaking challenge at the Maoriland Film Festival.
