Porirua's Pataka Gallery + Museum will next month host a show looking at how trailblazing indigenous filmmakers Barry Barclay and Merata Mita influenced a generation of modern-day artists.

The pair are widely regarded as the first indigenous New Zealand filmmakers to create films by Māori, about Māori, and for Māori.

Curator Ioana Gordon Smith, who put together the show at Te Uru Waitākere Contemporary Gallery, says the title From the Shore comes from Barclay’s metaphor of indigenous cinema as a camera on the shore that looks at how New Zealand was colonised, and how that has affected Māori.

The show includes photography and video by Ngāpuhi artist Lisa Reihana, renowned Australian photographer and video artist Tracey Moffatt and artists Tanu Gago, Robert George, Nova Paul and Tuafale Tanoa’I, aka Linda T.

The six artists look at what it means to represent indigenous people, places and ideas on the big screen.
