Justice & Multiculturalism Film Series: ONCE WERE WARRIORS

Friday, Apr 26, 2013 7:30p

Directed by Maori filmmaker Lee Tamahori(
New Zealand, 1995, 102 min.)
Set in a public housing project in Auckland, New Zealand, this film tells the story of a modern-day Maori family plagued by domestic violence, crime, poverty, and alcohol abuse. Austin Chronicle reviewer Marjorie Baumgarten said, “Harrowing…. both culturally specific and broadly universal…. the film’s searing performances are matched by the lovely camerawork of cinematographer Stuart Dryburgh (The Piano).”
