Barry Barclay: Ngati

Set in and around the fictional town of Kapua in 1948, Ngati is the story of a Maori community. The film comprises three narrative threads: a boy, Ropata, is dying of leukaemia; the return of a young Australian doctor, Greg, and his discovery that he has Maori heritage; and the fight to keep the local freezing works open.

Unique in tone and quietly powerful in its storytelling, Ngati was Barry Barclay's first dramatic feature, and the first feature to be written and directed by Maori.

Presented in partnership with Nga Taonga Sound & Vision.
