Whale Rider (2002)

Cert PG

97mins

Director: Niki Caro

In a small New Zealand coastal village, Maori claim descent from Paikea, the Whale Rider. In every generation, a male heir has succeeded to the chiefly title. When twins are born, and the boy twin dies, the chief is unable to accept his grand-daughter, Pai, as a future leader. Koro, the chief, is convinced that the the tribe’s misfortunes began at Pai’s birth and calls for his people to bring their sons to him, sure a new leader will be revealed. Pai loves Koro more than anyone in the world, but she must fight him and a thousand years of tradition to fulfil her destiny.

Episodes of Harry Meadley's new artwork On the Bench will be shown in advance of the feature film.
