The Dead Lands
After his tribe is slaughtered through an act of treachery, a Maori chieftain’s son must avenge his father’s murder in order to bring peace and honor to the souls of his loved ones. Vastly outnumbered by the band of villains, his only hope is to pass through the feared and forbidden Dead Lands and forge an uneasy alliance with the mysterious ‘Warrior’, a ruthless fighter who has ruled the area for years.
A visceral 19th century action-drama from versatile director Toa Fraser, filmed entirely in te reo Māori.
“A sumptuously photographed coming-of-age tale fired by honor and revenge” ~ Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter.
