TA MOKO - BEHIND THE TATTOOED FACE

Maori face tattoo, or tā moko, is a tradition that was nearly lost through colonisation. Bernard and Sapphire are passionate about seeing Maori communities heal, unite and look to a positive future in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Captured over one weekend on their home marae, this film tells their stories of pain and hope as they demonstrate this passion by receiving moko of their own.
