THREE WISE COUSINS, the Samoan comedy hit comes to ORIGINS. Prepare to be charmed! Born and raised in New Zealand, Adam is a typical 22-year-old city kid with a killer crush on Mary (who barely knows he exists). When he overhears Mary claim that she only dates 'real' pacific island guys, Adam makes it his mission to deliver. He packs his bags and flies to Samoa to engage the services of his two cousins – both island boys to the core – to teach him all the island ways, needless to say he quickly finds himself a 'fish out of water'. From climbing for coconuts to learning traditional dance, Adam’s journey to win Mary’s heart will win yours too. Made on a shoestring budget, the funny and charming THREE WISE COUSINS was a surprise hit at the NZ box office - a real success story of independent, grassroots indigenous filmmaking.
UK premiere at ORIGINS.
