By Darren Bevan – Newshub – 26/07/2022
One year after being cancelled last minute in Auckland due to COVID-19, cinephiles are rejoicing with the return of the 2022 Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival just days away.
The event opens on Thursday in Tāmaki Makaurau with the premiere of new Kiwi film Muru, about the 2007 New Zealand police raids of the Ngāi Tūhoe community of Rūātoki.
The festival will then head around the country to keep everyone entertained during the final days of winter.
Here are five unmissable films from this year’s event.
