NATIVE Minds | Ngā Kāwai Ka Toro Ki Tawhiti – Exploring Ancestral Connections
March 23 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am$6
When filmmakers gather to screen and share their work, they also need to talk about what they do and why. A storyteller is always alert to the tenor of the times in which they function. If they are honest, they are also alert to their own motivations and actions.
A Māoriland initiative NATIVE Minds is a series of interactive discussions that examine how Indigenous thinking shapes our existence, and our view of the world. Come and share some provocative and enlightening ideas that give enduring power and meaning to Indigenous cinema.
Ngā Kāwai Ka Toro Ki Tawhiti – Exploring Ancestral Connections
As each generation reaches out to new horizons, so too does it look back to the source of its identity and courage. Filmmakers of the nations of the Pacific are developing a remarkable film voice despite challenges of distance, relative isolation and limited access to modern technology. The NATIVE Mind understands that the narratives of ancestry connect us to place, time, and each other.
In this session we meet Pasifika women who are filmmakers dedicated to using their creativity for the benefit of their island communities.
