Waru

A powerful and passionate work exploring the death of young boy killed at the hands of his abusive carer. Eight Maori female directors each create a single take vignette of the various responses of people in the boy’s life from his aunts, his teacher and to a local Maori newsreader confronting the racist stereotyping.
