When you're larger-than-life and you've cheated death. When your
heart is busted and you've hurt the ones you love. How do you make
peace? What will you leave behind?
Raconteur, reo expert and entertainer Kotuku Tibble (Ngati Porou,
Tuwharetoa, Ngati Raukawa) recently died. He believes he was sent
back by his ancestors to make peace with those he loves and to
leave a legacy for his descendants. The problem is, his ancestors
sent him back with just a quarter of a heart.
Kotuku Rerenga Rua (The second flight of the White Heron) follows
the journey of Kotuku as he struggles through mental and physical
illness to redefine his life and become the husband, father and
leader he believes he was destined to be.
We are thrilled that Kotuku Rerenga Rua
has been selected to be part of the Loading Docs initiative, an
exciting launch-pad for New Zealand film-making talent. Because
they really want to see this film get made, Loading Docs, along
with principal partner NZ on Air, the New Zealand Film Commission,
and Te Maangai Paaho, have committed $4,000 to our film. However,
this funding only becomes available if we can raise at least $2,000
of our own via this Boosted campaign. As soon as we reach the goal,
filming can begin!
Any amount given is hugely appreciated!
