This is the untold story of a remarkable, fearless woman, the first Indigenous Maori woman to solely write and direct a feature film in the 1970s. Merata Mita was a pioneering activist filmmaker seeking to decolonize the screen – as she said “our land gets taken, fisheries and forests get taken and …so do our stories”. Her documentaries highlight injustices faced by her people. New Zealand 2018 (89 minutes)
