Tradition within modern media.

Waka Huia investigates the cinematic fabrication of a place today lost in time. History usually doesn’t excite much contemporary interest, unless Game of Thrones-like, it is embroiled with thematics of love, war and honour. Dead Lands is set in a time which proceeded the arrival of European settlement in NZ. That place way over there. Which most of you will never go… so therefore it remains enigmatic. The Deadlands film is an attempt to discover the creation of an ambitiously authentic cinema world that displays Maori language, customs, and martial arts.
