Date and Time: Tuesday, 2nd March 2021, 7.30pm

We want everyone to enjoy this free screening. Please be considerate and don’t book your tickets unless you’re sure you’ll be attending.

Eight female Māori directors have each contributed a ten minute vignette, presented as a continuous shot in real time that unfolds around the tangi (funeral) of a small boy who died at the hands of his caregiver. The vignettes are all subtly interlinked and each follow one of eight female Māori lead characters during the same moment in time as they come to terms with Waru’s death and try to find a way forward in their community. In Māori, waru means eight.


Information about filming location

The funeral is set on a small rural marae (communal and sacred meeting ground).
