Waru 15

Wed 21 – Thu 22 Nov


Continuing our ATYPICAL strand, dedicated to unique cinematic visions. Waru is the combination of work by eight female Māori directors who have each contributed a sequence to this deeply powerful and challenging feature which unfolds around the tangi (funeral) of a small boy (Waru) who died at the hands of his caregiver.

As the reverberations of this death ripple through the community we see it through the differing lenses of extended family, the neighbourhood, and national media.
