Muru (co-produced by WIFT member Selina Joe and the WIFT Awards 2022 Te Māngai Pāho Te Reo Māori Champion recipient Reikura Kahi) will open Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin festivals, while American filmmaker Sara Dosa’s lauded documentary Fire of Love will open in all other festival locations. Dosa’s portrait of two intrepid French volcanologists, skilfully constructed from amazing archival footage collected from ground-breaking volcanic expeditions, comes to the festival following the film making a major splash at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Swedish director Ruben Östlund’s Palme d'Or-winning Triangle of Sadness will bookend the festival programme in all centres.
