Mt Zion

New Zealand drama starring Temuera Morrison and Australian Idol winner Stan Walker as Turei, a young musician attempting to win an audition to be the support act for Bob Marley’s 1979 concert in Auckland. Set amongst a family of contract potato pickers in Pukekohe, Mt Zion is described as a "family-oriented story in which Turei’s desperate ambition clashes with traditional whanau values, leading to an emotional showdown and powerful change."  This is the feature debut of writer/director Tearepa Kahi.

An affectionate, cheerful, feel-good story that doesn't venture anywhere near gangs, drugs and violence.

A family saga, a get-ahead-in-showbiz story, a late 70s time capsule and a musical tribute too.
