9émes Rencontres Internationales du Cinéma des Antipodes
Wednesday 10, 10.15

In New Zealand, the land, Whenua, cannot be dissociated from the people, Tangata.
The land is indeed essential in the maori culture, that s why they fought to protect and take care of it, despite the colonisation. Nowadays, the maoris or Tangata Whenua are still very concerned by their land, no matter their tribe of origin, their native town or their integration level in the new Zealand society. Thats why the maori culture was able to survive in town or in the bush, even if the balance between tradition and integration is sometimes hard to achieve.
