Film a starring role By HANNAH SPYKSMA A Kiwi film about per- sonal struggles and redemption hits cinemas tomorrow. Matariki, directed and co-written by Grey Lynn resident Michael Ben- nett, is a multi-narrative film set on a starry night in south Auckland. I couldn't be more proud of New Zealand films,'' says Mr Bennett, who is confident his movie will be well received despite premier- ing on the same day as the seventh Harry Potter movie. It's fantastic that Kiwis really dig New Zealand movies.'' Based around a pivotal act of violence, the story sees several people come together in ways they would never expect, and challenges the audience's assumptions of them. There's no hiding from the fact that the film goes through its dark patches,'' Mr Ben- nett says. But if there's no dark- ness, there's no chance for redemption. I think that what you're doing when you make a film is holding a mirror up to the world. All the characters in Matariki have all come from real stories.'' The director and writer says the plot is focused on highlighting hope and redemption. Morningside resident Jarod Rawiri is one of the lead actors and says the importance of the film is in opening people's eyes to the realities of life in the south of the city. It's showing subtle differences between cul- tures but also showing subtle truths of people going about living their day to day lives.'' Although it fits into the New Zealand tra- dition of making dark films, Mr Rawiri says it transcends this stereo- type. I think it offers a dif- ferent slant on that darkness we often see in Kiwi movies. It's not openly happy but it does show that people are always hopeful despite their circumstances.'' Mr Rawiri plays Rick, a character struggling to balance his personal identity with family duty. He says part of the reason the film is con- vincing is because of the wonderful cast''. The storyline is based on a play which Mr Ben- nett saw 12 years ago. It was first written as a one-man show by Iaheto Ah Hi, who stars in the film adaptation.
