We Are Still Here (15)

Directors: Beck Cole, Dena Curtis, Tracey Rigney, Danielle MacLean, Tim Worrall, Renae Maihi, Miki Magasiva, Mario Gaoa, Richard Curtis, Chantelle Burgoyne

Australia/NZ, 2022, 1 hour 22 minutes, Maori, Samoan, Waramungu with subtitles

The collective work of ten Indigenous filmmakers, this subtly interweaves eight stunning tales of Indigenous struggle to tell a sweeping story of hope and survival. Deftly moving from the earliest days of European arrival, the Maori Wars, life in the trenches of World War 1 through to a dystopian vision of a future Aotearoa, this is a powerful statement of Indigenous resilience and vitality in the face of persistent oppression. Swinging between dark drama and light comedy - often within a single story - these works form a collective narrative of cultural pride and contemporary Indigenous activism.
