This is the film that inspired the theme. A documentary portrait of the pioneering indigenous filmmaker and activist Merata Mita, MERATA is an intimate tribute from a son about his mother that delves in the life of the first woman from an Indigenous Nation to solely direct a film anywhere in the world. Ava DuVernay’s company ARRAY is releasing it and made it available to us.
The filmmaker will call in from New Zealand.
