A fast paced drama told through five interweaving stories all set in the days leading to the rising of Matariki (the Māori New Year constellation).

Filmed in Auckland, Matariki stars an ensemble cast including Go-Girls‘ Alix Bushnell, Sara Wiseman and Sione’s Wedding‘s Iaheto Ah Hi, with a soundtrack by Don McGlashan featuring original tracks by Gin Wigmore, Bella Kalolo, and the Phoenix Foundation.

Michael Bennett’s first feature film offers international audiences an exciting and hopeful story about New Zealand today.

NZ, 2010, 93 min., Dir. Michael Bennett
