Anna Marbrook

Director

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 food series Real Pasifik, award-winning waka documentary Te Mana o te Moana – The Pacific Voyagers, and reality series 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
