This documentary by Ness Patea and Ruth Korver tells the rich history of the Marae as remembered by Bruce in the last years of his life. Check it out at one of four screenings the M?oriland Film Festival (MFF) where it's premiering.

The grants are administered by the New Zealand Writers Guild (NZWG) with support from  the New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC).
