About the Film:

Part of Aotearoa New Zealand Film Showcase 2017

Directed by Geoff Murphy. New Zealand. 2013. 118 min.

In 1983, director Geoff Murphy stormed out of the scrub of the nascent Kiwi film industry with a quadruple-barreled shotgun take on the great NZ colonial epic. Set during the New Zealand wars, this tale of a Māori leader (Anzac Wallace) and his bloody path to redress “imbalance” became the second NZ film officially selected for Cannes, and the second biggest local hit to that date (after Goodbye Pork Pie). A producer-driven recut was later shown in the US. This 2013 redux offers Utu enhanced and restored.
