Journalist Kim Webby's Price of Peace is a portrait of Tūhoe activist Tame Iti.

After the 2007 police raids, Tame Iti was one of four to go on trial, accused of plotting terrorist activities. Webby’s film ranges widely from early land grievances to modern-day jail cells — and a police apology. NZ Herald reviewer Peter Calder praised the result for balancing a personal focus on Iti, with “a powerfully affecting” examination of the 2007 raids, which placed the raids in "the wider context of Tūhoe history and the process of reconciliation”.

NZ, 2015, 82 min., Dir. Kim Webby
