Smoothie sits down with acclaimed director Tearapa Kahi ahead of the Australian release of his new film, Muru.
Inspired by numerous historical events, Muru tells the story of Taffy: a local police sergeant who’s forced to confront the conflict between his duty as an officer and his duty to his people when police launch a raid on his community.
This is not a recreation. This is a reaction.
Muru is now showing in Australian Cinemas.
Recent winner of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards 2022 – Cultural Diversity Award.
Muru is also New Zealand’s’ official submission to the Oscars 2023.
