About the Movie
Musician Turei dreams of his band, Small Axe, being the support act for Bob Marley’s 1979 tour. But it’s a dream that challenges the values of his traditional upbringing and sets him at odds with his family.
I could'nt watch my movie because I was not informed that my computer was not compatable to download this movie. Therefore I was wrongly charged for that movie I feel.
A glimpse if you're perceptive
The unspoken in this beautifully crafted piece, loudly gifts to those perceptive enough, an inkling of the essence of whānau. In my opinion,this movie portrays with humour and sensitivity, the intriguing beginnings of an insight into the significance of Tinorangatiratanga, and some of the subtle ways in which worlds and cultures collide, collude and compromise. Loved it. Soundtrack is gorgeous too.
Tearepa has crafted a beautiful story of whanau, of breaking the glass ceiling and of hope. Love seeing our stories on screen!
