A celebration of indigenous filmmaking, Waru is a feature film made up of eight vignettes each written and directed by Māori women directors. Waru unfolds around the tangi of a small boy (Waru) who died at the hands of his caregiver. The vignettes are all subtly interlinked and each follow one of eight female Māori lead characters during the same moment in time as they come to terms with Waru's death and try to find a way forward in their community.
