The Healer and the Psychiatrist

The Oceania Centre presents The Healer and the Psychiatrist – a film by Mike Poltorak featuring Emeline Lolohea, Dr Mapa Ha’ano Puloka and Dr ‘Alani Tangitau.

In Vava’u the traditional healer Emeline Lolohea treats people affected by spirits. One day away by ferry, the only Tongan Psychiatrist Dr Mapa Puloka established a public psychiatry well known across the region. Though they have never met in person, this film creates a dialogue between them on the nature of mental illness and spiritual affliction. Their commitment and transformative communication offers challenges and opportunities to help address the growing global mental health crisis.

Admission is Free and Open to the public.

Time: 6pm
Venue: Japan Pacific ICT Theatre, USP Laucala Campus, Suva
