FROM RAIDS TO RECONCILIATION

For seven years, the people of Ng?i T?hoe have suffered the fallout from the police raids of 2007.

the police apologise, the Crown apologises and reconciliation can begin.
This documentary follows the events from the raids to reconciliation– tracing the journey through one man: activist, kaumatua and artist, Tame Iti. Directed by Kim Webby and editted by Cushla Dillon.
AN ACCIDENTAL BERLINER
An ordinary Kiwi is caught up in the fall of the Berlin Wall and it changes his life.
“On 9 November 1989, by pure chance, I was in East Berlin – the night the Wall came down.
When I walked back through Checkpoint Charlie, the first foreigner to come through,
I was confronted by thousands of people, clapping and cheering...
“That extraordinary night reshaped my life as I went in search of its meaning,
put my career on hold and entered a schizophrenic existence, shuttling back and forth
across the world, seeking both love and an understanding I’m still groping for. ”
Feature documentary directed by Tony Forster, shot by Davorin Fahn and edited by Roger Grant .
Currently in post production.
