Directed by her youngest son Hepi Mita, Merata: How Mum Decolonised the Screen is a tender posthumous tribute to his mother’s life and career. A notorious agitator, her films bear witness to the injustice Māori people face in New Zealand, providing a voice for Māori people and especially for Māori women.
