Anna Marbrook


Director Anna Marbrook came to the screen from an extensive theatre background (she co-founded Auckland company Theatre at Large). More than 150 episodes directing on Shortland Street laid the groundwork for a run of factual work, focused on Pacific themes: including award-winning documentaries Loimata, The Sweetest Tears and Te Mana o te Moana – The Pacific Voyagers, and reality show Waka Warriors.

I made a very conscious choice to put Pacific voices up front and centre and position them as holding the wisdom and brilliance necessary to carry us all forward as humans. Anna Marbrook on her work for television
