Description

Chosen by New Zealand as its 2014 submission for Best Foreign Language Oscar, this moving drama follows Paraiti, a Maori medicine woman, as she leaves her rural home for Auckland. There, she runs into a Maori servant whose employer is a wealthy woman in a high position in European settler society.  A request is made:  Will Paraiti help the employer solve what could be a scandalous, life-threatening situation?  This is a tale of clashing cultures, racial identity and redemption.  Viewer Advisory: Mature themes.  

Followed by the short feature End of Season Sale (35 minutes). When their supply of Viagra runs out, two 70-something men think of other possibilities…maybe even love.
