Pasifika actors dominate the big screen in Taika Waititi's latest film, 'Next Goal Wins'.
The movie is based on the true story of American Samoa's football team, and their journey to the 2011 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.
Once dubbed 'the worst soccer team in the world' following an infamous 31-nil loss to Australia in 2001, the team aspires to score at least one goal in the 2011 qualifiers.
A private premiere was held November 20 at the Newmarket Event Cinemas in Auckland.
RNZ Pacific's Tiana Haxton went along.
