The Price of Peace
New Zealand investigative documentary on the ‘Urewera Four’, the 2007 criminal case where Tūhoe activist Tame Iti and three others were accused of plotting terrorist activities after an alleged paramilitary training camp was discovered by police in the Urewera. The film also explores the greater social impact residing in the aftermath of the trial.
"Charting his youth as a young activist through to his perspective on the polarising trial, the film offers us a rich, multifaceted portrait of the man, peppered by both his warm humanism and his rightly embittered philosophy. Employing Iti’s legal quandary as a microcosm of the tension between Ngāi Tūhoe and the Crown, Webby observes a people who never lose their integrity or vital sense of independence despite the long shadows of injustice."
