Description:Feature documentary series. Nga Morehu profiled the lives of four Maori elders within each of its 59 minute programmes, winning Best Maori Programme at the AFTAs, (the New Zealand Awards for Television). These programmes gave an insight into a world of spirits and ghosts, the struggle of being Maori in an era when it was not valued, when assimilation and racism was the norm. Each profile touched on the value, belief systems, the customs, ritual, arranged marriages, and the importance of tradition. ‘Nga Morehu’ (The Survivors) was launched internationally at the Dournanez Maori Film Festival in Brittany (2001). It also screened at the Skabmogovat Film Festival in Finland. Television New Zealand Maori language, with English sub-titles
