Begin to heal

A cinema feature film by Māori psychologist/filmmaker Paora Joseph, director of Tātarakihi: Children of Parihaka, MĀUI’S HOOK is a raw, compelling road trip of loss, forgiveness and redemption.

Hostage to his own pain, Tama, a disturbed young man, travels the destructive road of no return as five grieving families, broken by suicide, struggle with the painful loss of a loved one.

“The strikingly honest film invites open and frank discussions, arguing that everyone needs to get involved if anything is going to change.” -NZ Herald

“Within the first two minutes of the film I was absolutely captivated.” -Stuff

Māui’s Hook is a courageous journey exposing the raw reality of pain, grief and loss for whānau in the aftermath of suicide; yet spiritually uplifting and healing for those involved, and the viewer too. It highlights how the solutions for addressing and preventing suicide in Māori communities, particularly rurally, will come from those Māori communities.”  -Dr Monique Faleafa, CEO Le Va, Pasifika health provider.
