MATARIKI SPECIAL SCREENING
Come along with your whānau to celebrate Matariki.
‘Pacific Mother’ celebrates the wisdom of women through the ages, both mothers and midwives and asks “Can we bring some of that ancestral knowledge into today?“
Q & A with filmmakers and local guests.

Year: 2023
Genre: Documentary – Health & Wellbeing
Writer: Katherine McRae
Producer: Migiwa Ozawa, Shin Yamaguchi, Alex Reed, Karin Williams
Director: Katherine McRae

As freediving couple Sachiko Fukumoto and William Trubridge navigated maternity systems for the birth of their first child, it awoke in them a fierce realization about the lack of choice many parents face. Director Katherine McRae follows Sachiko as she connects with ocean women from around the Pacific, from Hawai’i, Tahiti, the Cook Islands, and Aotearoa New Zealand. Through their interwoven stories, the film explores the importance of community, reclaiming traditional birthing knowledge and the connection between caring for the planet and nurturing both parents and their children.
