Merata Mita (1942–2010) was a trailblazer of Māori film in Aotearoa New Zealand and a leader of international Indigenous cinema. She was also a dear friend and close confidante of Alanis Obomsawin. The evening showcases two of Mita’s films. The landmark Patu!, documents the South African rugby team’s controversial 1981 tour and the ensuing clashes between anti-apartheid protesters and the New Zealand police. Hotere portrays the life and art of Ralph Hotere, one of Aotearoa’s most significant artists.
