Māoriland presents Mele Murals – Tāmaki Makaurau
July 26, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm NZST$10
Maoriland Film Festival is Aotearoa’s international Indigenous film festival. Each March, Māoriland brings Indigenous filmmakers from around the world to celebrate their work with screenings, workshops, and other special events. The festival, now in its fifth year welcomed 12,500 people to Ōtaki earlier this year.
In celebration of its fifth birthday, Māoriland is bringing a selection of films to the North this July with screenings and free two-day filmmaking workshops for rangatahi in Whangarei, Kaitaia and Auckland.
Mele Murals is a documentary on the transformative power of modern graffiti art and ancient Hawaiian culture for a new generation of Native Hawaiians. At the center of this story are the artists Estria Miyashiro (aka Estria) and John Hina (aka Prime), a group of Native Hawaiian charter-school youth and the rural community of Waimea, dealing with the ill effects of environmental changes and encroaching modernisation on their native culture. In 2017, Estria travelled to Aotearoa, creating three murals with rangatahi in Ōtaki. There are plans for Estria to return to work in more locations around the country, this screening is an opportunity to learn more!
Tickets are $10 and available at Te Oro or via Eventfinda.
