  1. The trailer for this feature film.

Synopsis

"It is about 'life, death and fu*king good music'" runs the tagline to this feature film. It follows a Wellington band playing the pubs of the East Coast and Northland, as they head for Cape Reinga. On the road to Te Rerenga Wairua the boys go on a roots journey that is both musical (Pā Boy Danny is played by Francis Kora, with songs composed by Trinity Roots' Warren Maxwell) and personal (exploring mateship, whānau, whakapapa). The debut from writer/director Himiona Grace was co-produced by Ainsley Gardiner (Boy). It’s due in Kiwi theatres on 6 February 2014.

Quotes

We’re the Pā Boys from Wellington … 
What’s a Māori without roots eh? 
It is a story that explores the strength of friendship, the importance of whānau (family) whakapapa (genealogy) and history.
