Loimata, The Sweetest Tears
By Anna Marbrook
In LOIMATA, THE SWEETEST TEARS, filmmaker Anna Marbrook takes us with her friend, Lilo Ema Siope, an extraordinary ocean-going waka captain, on an emotional healing journey in the last months of her life. Strongly tied to Ema’s Samoan culture, the compassionate film is an intimate exploration of a family shattered by shame but working courageously to liberate themselves from the shackles of the past.
LOIMATA is a journey of courage, tears, laughter and above all, unconditional love.
