HOWL FOR CHANGE WITH HEPERI MITA AND HIS MOTHER MERATA MITA

IN OUR FIRST EPISODE, WE SPEAK WITH MĀORI FILMMAKER HEPERI MITA ABOUT HIS DOCUMENTARY MERATA: HOW MUM DECOLONISED THE SCREEN, WITH WHICH HE REVIVES HIS MOTHER’S SPIRIT YEARS AFTER HER DEATH.

HAVING AN ABUNDANCE OF RESOURCES, HEPI MITA RUMMAGES THROUGH ARCHIVAL FOOTAGE OF HIS MOTHER AND INTERVIEWS HIS OLDER SIBLINGS TO DISCOVER MERATA’S STORY AND TO UNDERSTAND HER JOURNEY AS A MĀORI FILMMAKER, SOCIAL ACTIVIST, AND MOTHER. MERATA MITA WAS THE FIRST INDIGENOUS FEMALE AND MĀORI FILMMAKER TO WRITE AND DIRECT A FEATURE FILM, MAURI (1988).

THIS PURSUIT OF DISCOVERY RESULTS IN HIM STEPPING INTO HER FOOTSTEP AND TAKING ON HER MISSION, BOTH AS A FILMMAKER AND VOICE FOR INDIGENOUS PEOPLE, TO SHINE LIGHT ON INJUSTICES AND PARTAKE IN CREATING A MORE JUST WORLD.
