About 97 per cent of people in Samoa identify as Christian, and the society is generally considered conservati­ve and traditiona­l. Samoa’s principal censor Leiataua Niuapu Faaui told the that the homosexual activity depicted on screen violated laws and didn’t sit well with the country’s cultural and Christian beliefs.
