Tupaia’s Endeavour – The Director’s Cut

Re-edited from the earlier Māori TV series, Lala Rolls' feature-length film follows a Tahitian high priest and navigator travelling across the pacific aboard Captain James Cook’s HMS Endeavour.

"Using a rich array of documentary tools, Rolls freely re-imagines Tupaia’s experience with the help of actor Kirk Torrance as Tupaia. She also weaves in the personal journey of artist Michel Tuffery, who travels to modern day Raiatea following the traces of his own family connections to the historical figure." (New Zealand International Film Festival)

Powerfully relevant at a time when Cook’s impact on our country is being re-examined, this also offers a fascinating insight into the healing that still needs to take place.
