A 12 year old girl fights for the right to carry on Maori conventions in this New Zealand film. As she clashes with her grandfather over learning the clan’s rituals, we see the pulls of tradition, nature and the modern world at play. Keisha Castle-Hughes, as the lead character Pai, is one of the youngest persons ever to be nominated for an Academy Award. Follow this link for more information. (This is a non-GS event.)
