Critic Reviews for Waru
The cumulative power of this splintered portrait of community trauma creeps up on you.
Perhaps not every section works. But Waru lingers, disquietingly, in the mind.
A fascinating glimpse into New Zealand's contemporary Maori community, Waru brings a sense of dramatic, urgent realism to a story that plays out like a suspenseful mystery.
Joined together, the shorts are a powerful chorus of female Maori voices united in finding a way to protect all that is vulnerable.
The fact that this is the first feature film made by Maori women in nearly 30 years, says a great deal about the film industry and that this film has arrived at the right time.
