Decolonising the Screen in Aotearoa
An in-depth examination of the socio-cultural and political impact of New Zealand films foregrounding Māori, both in front of and especially, behind the camera. The course looks primarily at how Māori filmmakers have used cinema as a means to reassert cultural identity and tino rangatiratanga, from its activist beginnings during the Māori Cultural Renaissance in the 1980s, to the present.
