Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Merata Mita, CNZM (19 June 1942 - 31 May 2010) was a significant filmmaker in New Zealand as well as a key figure in the growth of the M ori screen industry. Mita was from the M ori tribes of Ng ti Pikiao and Ng i Te Rangi. Mita was born in Maketu in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand's North Island. She was the third eldest of nine children and had a traditional rural M ori upbringing. She taught at Kawerau College for eight years, where she began using film and video to reach "unteachable" high school students, many of them M ori. The experience eventually led her into a lengthy career in the film and television industry. She was appointed Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the New Year Honours 2010, for services to the film industry.show more
