E Rangi Rā is a short film about a child's love for their parents after they are separated following the attack of Ngāpuhi on Te Whānau a Hinerupe during the 1800s.
The attack of Ngāpuhi on Te Whānau a Hinerupe came shortly after Europeans introduced muskets to Aotearoa, enabling significant bloodshed. Growing up in Te Araroa I was told this story from a young age. For my whānau, the impact of the attack remains fresh with sadness and pain to this day.
In E Rangi Rā, the title character - Rangi is a young girl with authority and power, she is smart and somewhat sassy. Rangi begins her adventure with her mother being captured by Ngāpuhi, during this journey she meets a young boy named Hiwa who has become lost, Rangi helps Hiwa and they fall in love.
