A beautifully designed book that champions recent film, animation and video art made by Māori artists – including Shannon Te Ao, Jeremy Leatinu’u, Nova Paul, Nathan Pōhio, Louise Pōtiki Bryant, Rachael Rakena, Lisa Reihana and many more.
Whether it be 16mm film, hand-drawn animation, 4K video or footage recorded on a phone, moving image artworks create a unique space for Māori artists to connect the forms, patterns and concepts of toi ataata (Māori visual arts) with the oral histories, performance and music of ngā mahi a te rēhia (the arts of performance).
This book acknowledges the senior Māori artists who have led the way, and the newer generations working with moving image to convey concepts of whakapapa, whenua and whanaungatanga.
Features texts in te reo Māori and English by Maree Mills, Melanie Oliver, Bridget Reweti, Ariana Tikao, Nina Tonga and Matariki Williams, as well as interviews with several major artists.
