Lami Kava is proud to announce its sponsorship for the production of “Jone Wise” – A short film created by a local team of aspiring filmmakers concentrated on the comical look of the realities of grog sessions and the unspoken rule of flip flops ownership!



‘When someone steals his precious flip flops, Jone Wise must return to his old ways of Grog Combat and battle his way through adversity, tribulation and high tide takis to retrieve what is rightfully his.’

Lami Kava has thrown its financial support behind this production by donating to the film’s budget.

“As one of Fiji’s premier leading kava suppliers, Lami Kava has always shared a commitment to breaking barriers when it comes to creativity, people and community partnerships.
