Marist Brothers High School will be advocating on Climate Change at this month’s Film Fiji and Fijian Made Film Awards.

Year 13 student and Producer, Goleanavanua Lesuma said they wanted to do something different that could influence change and the mindset of people.

Mr Lesuma said: “The story is based on a student who comes from Kiribati and he comes to a new country Fiji.”

The setting is in the classroom where they are talking about climate change and some of the other boys start teasing him that climate change is not real.

“The next scene is when the main character is seen at the sea wall area and is thinking about what the other boys had said.”

Mr Lesuma said by now the supporting actor appears to comfort the Kiribati student and later on realises how deep the effect of the issue really is.

The five minute films main message is the realisation that Climate Change is real and needs to be taken seriously. There are eight main cast members with 43 students in the school scene.

Kula Dance

Expect about 100 dancers as well from the flagstaff boys as they will be rocking the stage.

Student and dancer, Ratu Nepote Vuruna said the performance will feature modern and traditional dance centred on their theme.

He said when they perform during the night they hope the crowd will grasp their message.

Year 13 student, Kautane Erasito is one of three students from the school taking part at the Kula Art Awards.

The theme for this year’s Art Awards: Children of the Sun

“My art depicts the sun as an element of life for each and every one of us.

“It’s the first time I’m taking part this year and it’s just an opportunity to explore art,” he said.

It took him only one night to complete his painting and even though art is just a hobby, Mr Erasito has options of taking it up as a career in the future.

The Film and Art Awards will be held on July 28 at the Damodar Vmax Cinema at Damodar Event Cinemas on Grantham Road.

The Fiji Link Dance competition will be held on Saturday July 29 at the Vodafone Arena.
