Ngai Tūhoe to attend Rain of The Children Film premiere

11 07 2008

Vincent Ward’s RAIN OF THE CHILDREN premieres on Saturday 12th July, 6.15pm at the Civic theatre, in the 40th Auckland International Film Festival.

The New Zealand premiere will host approximately 400 members of Ngai Tūhoe Tribe who will make the trip from around the North Island to be at this prestigious event, and a packed cinema is anticipated.

Accolades have been flowing from the two key US industry publications, Hollywood Reporter and Variety, since its world premiere at Sydney Film Festival.

Temuera Morrison, Waihoroi Shortland, Taungaroa Emile and the five of the Tūhoe women that play Puhi will be at Saturday’s premiere.

With a heart-rendering Powhiri and these distinguished guests looking on, it will be a feast for the senses, a truly spectacular event.
