Win a double pass to Waruby The Listener
From eight Māori women directors come eight connected stories, each taking place at the same time during the tangi (funeral) of a small boy, Waru, who has died at the hands of a caregiver. The eight stories (in Māori, waru means eight) are all subtly linked and follow different female characters as they come to terms with Waru's death and try to find a way forward in their community. The film, both groundbreaking and heartbreaking, is essential viewing. It is the first feature film directed by wāhine Māori since Merata Mita's Mauri in 1988.
The Listener has 10 double passes to give away.
