Saili, a little person and taro farmer, has his life turned upside-down when he is denied his father's chiefly status and his family plantation is threatened.

The Orator (O Le Tulafale) is a contemporary drama about courage, forgiveness, and love.  Small in stature and humble, Saili lives a simple life with his beloved wife and daughter in an isolated, traditional village in the islands of Samoa.  Forced to protect his land and family, Saili must face his fears and seek the right to speak up for those he loves.

WS, 1956, Colour, 110min., Rated M, Dir. Tusi Tamasese
