Matariki festival of films Movie- Ngākau

June 29, 2024

A selection of short films from local film maker Komako Silver

Ngākau 6.54mins 'NGĀKAU' is a poetic film that dives deep into the wananga of the 3 chambers of the heart — whatumanawa, manawa and pumanawa. Performance poet Michael Moore and filmmaker and taonga pūoro artist Komako-aroha Silver take us on a haerenga into the caves of one’s kare-a-roto with visual poetry from Te kore, Te Po through to Te Ao Marama. This rich immersion in tikanga, ancestry, the divine and the sublime is beautifully shot in the wilds of Te Henga, with an immersive soundtrack including taonga pūoro. Moore and Silver’s story embraces the heart, the mind and the soul.

Plus additional four short films 5min poetic films featuring different stars of Matariki narrated by Ngaronoa Renata in collaboration Tuakana Whetu Silver and Atirau Jensen.

Komako-aroha Silver will be present during the screenings of her films and will share personal insights into the making of these works with an invitation to ask questions after each section of the screening.
