Mauri is the story of Rewi, a man haunted by a past which threatens to engulf his future.
When she made Mauri, Merata Mita became the first Maori woman to write amd direct a dramatic feature.
Mauri (meaning 'life force') is loosely set around a love triangle and explores cultural tensions, identity and changing ways of life in a dwindling East Coast town in New Zealand.
