The highly anticipated We Are Still Here finally hits Aotearoa cinema screens on 2 February! The anthology feature includes DEGANZ members Tim Worrall, Renae Maihi, and Chantelle Burgoyne on its team of 10 directors who worked together to bring eight unique Indigenous stories to life.
The film demonstrates that in order to move forward, we must first look back. Traversing 1,000 years through the eyes of indigenous protagonists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, We Are Still Here depicts stories of kinship, grief, and resilience, and highlights the strength of love and hope to overcome the shared traumas South Pacific Indigenous people continue to face. The film seeks to remind viewers that despite colonialism, racism, imperialism, and the attempted erasure of lives and culture, Indigenous people are still here.
The theatrical release follows the film’s festival rounds, big win of the Dramatic Feature Award at the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, and countless rave reviews throughout 2022.
