Director, Cinematographer [Tainui, Mātaatua, Te Arawa]

Mike Jonathan has worked in the industry for roughly 30 years, primarily as a director and cinematographer. Alongside directing numerous television series for Whakaata Māori and Prime, and his own short films, Jonathan has been behind the camera on several high profile documentaries. He is set to make his feature directing debut with Ka Whawhai Tonu, which features actors Temuera Morrison and Cliff Curtis.

My passion for filmmaking has grown, fuelled by the profound impact that stories can have on our lives. Through the power of visual storytelling, I can connect people, bridge cultures, and evoke a sense of shared humanity. Mike Jonathan
