Ka Whawhai Tonu Matou: Struggle Without End

Ka Whawhai Tonu tells the story of the last battle in the New Zealand land wars set in 1864. A battle fought between Māori and the Colonial forces, it was a battle against all odds. This heroic conflict is told through the eyes of two young teenagers forced to take control of their own destiny amidst the chaos of the battle and their escape.


  • This is one of the most important events in Aotearoa - New Zealand History and I am so proud of our team and excited to bring this story to the big screen. This is a story told for the first time from an indigenous point of view and will change t he way we view history.
