Southern Exposure presents: ONCE WERE WARRIORS

We regret that this screening has been cancelled. Southern Exposure is an on-going New Zealand cinema series; our aim is to explore and promote the best films from NZ . ONCE WERE WARRIORS opened the eyes of cinemagoers around the globe to an unexamined aspect of modern New Zealand life. Director Lee Tamahori's hard-hitting depiction of domestic and gang violence amongst an urban Māori whānau was adapted from the best-selling Alan Duff novel. The film provided career-defining roles for Temuera Morrison and Rena Owen as Jake the Muss and Beth Heke. It remains NZ 's most watched local release in terms admissions. Please note: contains scenes of domestic violence, rape, and suicide. Dir: Lee Tamahori 1994 (New Zealand)
