TUATAHI: ARIHIA HALL, QIANNA TITORE, BRIANNE TE PAA, HARIATA MORIARTY (2023)
Three young fluent te reo speakers producing inspirational work across a variety of genres, talk about the bravery and passion it took to take the unmapped uncharted leap into a creative life. Founding member of award-winning slam poetry group Ngā Hine Pūkōrero Arihia Hall (Te Arawa, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Ngāti Tūkorehe); the youngest director ever selected for the NZ International Film Festival, Qianna Titore (Ngāti Hau, Ngāti Kaharau); and children's author Brianne Te Paa (Ngāti Kahu, Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Whātua, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Te Aitanga-a-Māhaki, Te Whānau-a- Apanui) talk with acclaimed actress Hariata Moriarty (Ngāti Toarangatira, Ngāti Kahungunu ki te Wairoa, Ngā Puhi Hokianga ki te Raki) about the fear and courage of deciding to write, about creating their first pieces, and about the intersection between their culture and their art. Each writer will read, perform or screen part of an early work.
Tokotoru ngā arero reo Māori rangatahi nō ētahi rāngai maha ka kōrero mō te māia me te kaingākau, nā konei rātou itakahi ai i te ara motuhake, otirā, i te ara kāhore i āta whakamaheretia, kia whai oranga ai i te ao auaha. Ka kōrero tahi ko te ringatito, rātou ko tētahi o ngā mema tuatahi o te kapa toikupu slam kua whakanuia ki te tohu toa anō hoki, o Ngā Hine Pūkōrero, ko Arihia Hall (Te Arawa, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Ngāti Tūkorehe), ko te ringatohu tamariki katoa kua pōhiritia ki te taiopenga kiriata NZ International Film Festival, ko Qianna Titore (Ngāti Hau, Ngāti Kaharau); me te kiriwhakaari taiea, me Hariata Moriarty (Ngāti Toarangatira, Ngāti Kahungunu ki te Wairoa, Ngā Puhi Hokianga ki te Raki); ko Brianne Te Paa (Ngāti Kahu, Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Whātua, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Te Aitangaa- Māhaki, Te Whānau-a-Apanui). Ko ā rātou kaupapa kōrero ko te wehi ki te tuhi, me te māia e tahuri ai rātou ki te tuhi, ko te waihangatanga mai o ā rātou titonga tuatahi, otirā, ko te hāngai o ō rātou ahurea ki ā rātou mahinga toi; mā ia ringatito hoki e pānui, e waiata, e whakaata rānei i tētahi wāhi o ā rātou mahinga toi tōmua.
