Fa’amoana John Luafutu
ACTOR, MUSICIAN, WRITER
Of the Sa Tuatagaloa can, Fa’amoana John Luafutu came to New Zealand as a young boy from the villages of Satalo and Poutasi, Falelili, Samoa. A self-taught musician and writer, John is known for his book, A Boy Called Broke – My story: so far. His involvement in The White Guitar has been another step in telling his story which he hopes will help young Pacific people in their own journeys. Earlier this year, John worked with his son Matthias on the film Ghost in the Shell, starring Scarlett Johansson.
