About the Film:

Directed by Tearepa Kahi. Aotearoa. 2013. 93 mins.

Tearepa Kahi’s debut feature film is a coming-of-age tale of Turei, a young potato picker from Pukekohe, who dreams of his band Small Axe winning an audition to open for a touring Bob Marley. It’s a dream that challenges family traditions and sets him at odds with his father, a man of the land. Starring Australian Idol winner Stan Walker in his acting debut as Turei and Temuera Morrison (Once Were Warriors, River Queen) as his father, Mt Zion topped the New Zealand box office in 2013. Features original music with a Māori take on Marley’s reggae.
