Marlon Rivers

"From Vaiala and Vailoa (Faleata) in Samoa although New Zealand is now home. Temporarily based in Hong Kong at the moment exploring my roots. Graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design then subsequently spent the next seven years lecturing in film and video, managing a band, and learning how to run an IT department. I am very interested in autobiographical works and often take a narrative approach to my films and videos." - Artist Statement
