A moving biopic of the trailblazing female Maori leader, Dame Whina Cooper, co-directed by James Napier Robertson (“The Dark Horse”).
Whina’s extraordinary life saw her break gender boundaries, champion innovation, and fight for the recognition of her own culture, all the while staying true to her heart and her beliefs.
“While the film is a powerful portrait of the woman at its heart, it is also a breathtaking picture of nearly a century of social history.” ~Rachel Ashby, Flicks
“Don’t see Whina because you “think you should”. See it because it’s a damned good story, very well told.” ~Graeme Tuckett, Stuff
