Mauri
1988. Aotearoa/New Zealand. Written and directed by Merata Mita (Maori). With Anzac Wallace, Eva Rickard, James Hayward. In her breakthrough dramatic feature Mauri (the Maori word for 'life force'), a romantic suspense story is beautifully set in a small Maori community in 1950s New Zealand. The people face the loss of both their land and their young people, who are migrating to the cities—conflicts sharpened by the arrival of the mysterious Rewi, a man on the run from prison. 99 min.
