Directed by Dana Rotberg
New Zealand, 2013, Digital, 96 min., Color
English and Maori with English subtitles


Paraiti is a wise Maori healer and midwife who was cruelly orphaned as a child by marauding whites in New Zealand. Now middle-aged, she must deal with new Euro-centric laws enacted to outlaw native medicine and its practitioners. Unexpectedly the servant of a wealthy woman haughtily approaches Paraiti with a traumatic request, one which will change the lives of four women. Taken from a novella by Witi Ihimaera, author of the book which was turned into the popular film WHALE RIDER (2002). WHITE LIES was New Zealand’s submission to the 2014 Oscars.
