In light of the most recent developments, it has been decided that this screening of Waru is cancelled.
This is being done to safeguard the health and safety of our staff and patrons which is our number one priority.
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).
