The first episode of new documentary series Giants premiered on Māori Television last week and is now available to watch On Demand. Co-edited by DEGANZ member Anthea Ede Smith, Scott Howard, Kaz Miley and Tara Durrant, Giants is a seven-part documentary series that takes a look at legacy, whakapapa, and heritage through the lens of different migrant communities in Aotearoa.

The series tells untold stories from Chinese, Punjabi, Filipino, African, and Samoan migrant communities in Aotearoa. It explores the idea that immigrants ‘stand on the shoulder of giants’, building upon the legacy and whakapapa of their tūpuna.

Episodes of Giants air on Māori Television on Fridays at 9:30pm. They will then become available On Demand.
