          Fritz, a displaced Tongan man, returns to the cul-de-sac of his youth to sell his family home. When a priceless heirloom - a championship wrestling belt belonging to his late father, Baron To'a, - is pillaged from the family home, Fritz's uncle Otto cancels the sale of the house ...until the belt is returned. A local street thug reveals the belt is now in the possession of resident gang, The Pig Hunters. Fritz determines to get the belt back with higher reasoning. After a run-in with a corrupt cop and a vicious attack from the gang, three patched members invite Fritz to a BBQ to break bread'. The family-oriented BBQ becomes dangerous after dark as Fritz comes face-to-face with gang leader Tahu who has the belt draped over his shoulder. Fritz fails to reason with Tahu and is ruthlessly beaten into the streets. While healing, Fritz realises he must rekindle a lost connection with his father's legacy, proclaiming to Otto that he wants a 'shot at the title'. After training with Otto, Fritz combines his analytics skills with his father's wrestling techniques to smash his way through the gang and flush out Tahu. An epic no holds barred' title fight ensues but does Fritz truly understand what it takes to become the champion?

          In 1984, 'Poi E' reached Number 1 on the NZ Pop Charts and broke every musical record. It remained in the charts for 34 weeks. It outsold 'Thriller', 'I Just Called to Say I Love You' and every other hit of 1984. It has been in the Top 10 in New Zealand, every decade for the past... 30 years. It was also the first Number 1 song written and released entirely in Te Reo Maori. To put it simply, this small song changed New Zealand, forever.

WHITE LIES is written and directed by Dana Rotberg and based on the novella Medicine Woman by Witi Ihimaera. Paraiti (Whirimako Black) is a medicin...e woman. She is the healer and midwife of her rural, tribal people she believes in life. But new laws are in force prohibiting unlicensed healers. On a rare trip to the city, she is approached by Maraea (Rachel House), the servant of a wealthy woman, Rebecca (Antonia Prebble), who seeks her knowledge and assistance in order to hide a secret which could destroy Rebeccas position in European settler society. If the secret is uncovered a life may be lost, but hiding it may also have fatal consequences. So Paraiti, Maraea and Rebecca become players in a head-on clash of beliefs, deception and ultimate salvation.
