Born To Dance

Synopsis

Choreographed by world champion Parris Goebel and featuring some of the best hip hop dancers in the world, Born to Dance is the hottest dance movie of the year.

Tu Kaea (champion hip hop dancer Tia Maipi) has the chance to audition for K-Crew, the best hip hop crew in the country, but he has to go behind the backs of his home crew and his best friend Benjy (Stan Walker: Mt Zion, The X Factor NZ). Things get even more complicated when he starts falling for Sasha (Kherington Payne: Fame, The Dance Scene), the girlfriend of K-Crew’s leader.

When Tu’s old crew and new crew clash, he has to make a decision that will change his life forever. Caught between who he is and who he wants to be, Tu must find the strength to make his own breaks.

Waru

A sisterhood of 8 Maori female directors bravely share their insights into the complexity of child abuse, in a sequence of eight short films that seamlessly become one.

At the centre of their stories is Waru, a boy killed at the hands of a caregiver. His tangi, set on a small rural marae, is the centrepiece of the film, but there is an underlying disturbance of heavy themes touching on culture, custom and shame.

Borg/McEnroe

Borg/McEnroe is a film about one of the world’s greatest icons Björn Borg and his biggest rival, the young and talented John McEnroe and their legendary duel during the 1980’s Wimbledon tournament. It’s a story about two men who changed the face of tennis and who became legends and the price they had to pay.
