Ngā Wai e Rua : Stories of Us – Film

Sunday 29 November 2020, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$20.00 – $30.00

Take a look back at our rich history with Ngā Wai e Rua: Stories of Us. This special compilation explores encounters between Māori and non-Māori dating back to 1901. A range of remarkable and rarely seen footage from the vaults of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision are covered in this rich and fascinating 45-minute programme. From the first filmed encounter between Māori and British Royals to footage of the 1975 Land March, these items evoke a strong sense of the shared stories and rich dual histories of Aotearoa New Zealand.

This special film screening is presented in association with Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision– Aotearoa New Zealand’s Archive of Film, Television and Sound. They collect, preserve, care for and share the audiovisual taonga of Aotearoa so that our nation’s stories are never lost. This screening will be presented by Ngā Taonga Senior Outreach Curator Diane McAllen.

Diane McAllen, Senior Outreach Curator has worked at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision for over 20 years. She was one of the team who curated Ngā wai e Rua : Stories of Us, she will introduce the film and hold a Q&A session afterwards.
