This short film is the next iteration of the ongoing collaboration between Maata Wharehoka and myself. Some of the footage was captured in June 2021 when I visited Maata for the Puanga Kai Rau festival at Parihaka.

Sharing this lovely message from Shelley Darling:

Very simply. The power of that video, the depth of soul expression within the still waters of the heart rippled loudly. I just had to respond in the moment touched by quality and essence and beauty was astounding.

I carry that into my day… And everything I do. Honoring the mauri, mana and wairua. The energy that runs through all life.

Shelley Darling, August 2021.
