HE KAKANO AHAU - FROM THE SPACES IN BETWEEN

SHORT DOCUMENTARY

GENRE: LGBTQI Maori

RELEASE:  2017

DURATION: 3:18 


New Zealand’s Pride celebrations are glitzy and glamorous, but takatāpui activist Kassie (Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga) is challenging the inclusivity of the festival. The historic Wellington Pride celebration forces Kassie to make a decision. Will she take part and speak for those who are both queer and Māori?


This short documentary utilises English and te reo Māori to tell an intensely personal story of a courageous wahine (woman) fighting to be heard.
