School Screening: Whale Rider


*Please Note*: This is a schools screening only.

Into Film is pleased to bring you a schools’ screening of WHALE RIDER as part of our Spring Screenings programme. Schools can book here.

Tradition causes trouble in a family when a young Maori girl wants to take up what she believes is her rightful place at the head of her tribe – because the man standing in her way is her own grandfather, and his love for her is not enough to change his belief that only a boy could ever lead the tribe. Set in modern New Zealand, Whale Rider superbly shows what happens when old-fashioned thinking gets in the way of people’s potential.

Language: English and Maori (English Subtitles)
