Legendary film editor and DEGANZ board member Annie Collins spoke to Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision about her work on PATU!, collaborating with trailblazing Māori filmmaker Merata Mita.
Annie recalls the unique challenges when it came to editing the documentary film, which records the anti-Apartheid protest that took place in New Zealand during the 1981 South African rugby tour. She explains that Merata Mita was certain that she wanted PATU! to serve as an historical document.
Annie also speaks about her own history in film and how she began her career as an editor in Aotearoa.
