Galumalemana Steven Percival
Graduating in 1980 with a degree in marketing from Massey University in New Zealand, Galumalemana has always been interested in art. He is a self-taught photographer and videographer and has, over the years, become increasingly interested in documenting Samoa’s rich natural and cultural heritage and some of the challenges facing society. In 2003, with support from the United Nations, Galumalemana produced his first documentary film: exploring perceptions of human rights in Sāmoa. He went on to produce two more human rights education films in 2005: on issues facing disabled persons and on religious freedom. Over 30 productions are currently listed in the Tiapapata Art Centre multimedia catalogue.
