Five great New Zealand stories are worth reviewing this Maori language week.

Dark Horse (Bemfilm, YouTube, iTunes, Academy on Demand, NZfilm on Demand)

This Flatout is one of the most entertaining and moving real life stories I’ve ever seen on a movie screen. The fact is that this is a locally made film that makes me happy.

Genesis Putini – here Cliff Curtis played in a performance that really deserved a worldwide award – a pre-chess gift. But Genesis also lived with bipolar and other disorders that left her living on the unstable edges of society. Raised around intoxication and abuse, Putin found some relief in the chaos of high-speed chess, which he taught at Gasbourne’s Eastern Nightclubs.

Curtis lifted 30kg to play Putin and remained in the role for the entire shoot, challenging the crew and the rest of the cast to play between scenes.

Features of James Rolliston As a young man, Putin tries to save the life of the group for which he seems destined. And Van Hoppie – one of the best actors we’ve ever produced – emerged as the group’s leader.

Deadlands (Academy on Demand, NZFilm OnDemand, YouTube)

It was the most unexpected movie of 2014.

up to. Dead lands, An obscure rule seemed to be that 21st century “serious” filmmaking in this country would have to be a little more criminal and less fun, if one were to think that we were not worthy of respect. And then there was the blast of ass kicking to make local dramas great again.

Dead lands. Set in a semi-mythical, pre-colonial Aotearoa. James Rollston played the role of the only survivor of the massacre in his village. Together with a legendary warrior (Lord of colors.‘Lawrence Macquarie), will go out for some industrial power.

Dead lands. It’s a New Zealand movie we didn’t know we were waiting for. It’s funny, furious, bloody fun. If you were a fan of Mel Gibson. Apocalypto, Or a recent martial arts blockbuster, then you really need to watch. Dead lands..

P Boys (TVNZ OnDemand, NZFilm OnDemand)

I couldn’t review what actually came back in 2014, because I was lucky to be part of the small crew that helped make the film.

The first feature of Hamona Grace is the story of a band on a road trip.

After their shared flat in Wellington, the boys, who called themselves DP Boys, decided to get out and fish in the bars and pubs of Tika A Moi. And so a road trip is considered “down north”.

Lots of music, some fights, falling in love on old love affairs and healthy food for learning, growing up and connecting with where we come from.

Like all good road trip movies, P boys Shots were fired at the locations mentioned in the script. Our circus was on the road for a month, the last week was spent around Cape Renga and Hokyanga Harbor.

With some clear heart and soul on screen, the film turned out very well. Frances Cora, Tola New Berry, Matariki Watarau, Juanita Happy, Romata Fox, Troy Kingi and the wonderful Nancy Bruning all feature.

Warren Maxwell of Trinity Roots collaborated on the songs and wrote the soundtrack. You may not love P boys As much as i will But you can like it a lot. It will also be added to Neon’s lineup on September 13.

Happy Mita.

Mirata: How Mom Declined the Screen is now available for streaming on Netflix.

Mirata: How Mom Declined the Screen (Netflix)

Son Hepari Mita’s 2018 documentary on his mother’s life and filmmaking is a respectable, clear-eyed and honest life that went on without compromise.

It may not be celebrated like some blocks, but Mirata Mita was probably the largest and most influential of this generation of New Zealand filmmakers that broke up in the 1970s and 1980s.

His movies. Basement point: Day 507. And Leash! – The forcible removal of the occupiers of the disputed land, and the nascent protest movement against the 1981 Spring Book Tour – both were victories of making an observational documentary in frontline situations. Both films attracted international attention and acclaim.

It may not be celebrated like some blocks, but Mirata Mita was probably the largest and most influential of this generation of New Zealand filmmakers that broke up in the 1970s and 1980s.

Leash! (NZ on-screen)

Just last month, we completed the 40th anniversary of the Spring Book Tour and the rift that it has created through the New Zealand Society.

Of Merta Mita. Leash! There is a ground statement that a protest movement that started in a few flats and union offices across the country has become a cohesive and resourceful force.

Made by Mita and his staff. Leash! In exceptional circumstances, police raids on homes could be thought to have saved footage and equipment. The film was partially edited on Wyke Island, and if any “mainland” police show up, the island’s pier will be monitored.

even today , Leash! An inclusive, emotional document. The film does not claim to be neutral or balanced. This is just a record of the development of a movement. But, like before Mita. Basement point: Day 507.It captures a moment in time and its movement. Highly recommended.
