Director and producer Mina Mathieson’s kete of screen credits packs in everything from Marae DIY to the National Māori Weaponry School, from karanga to helping kick off the Rugby World Cup on TV. Mathieson trained at NZ Broadcasting School and set up production company m3media to showcase indigenous storytelling. She followed NZ Natives rugby short Warbrick with co-producing Māori musical odyssey movie The Pā Boys.
Their highlight of the whole trip was spending two weeks at a marae at Tuparoa, very remote, up the coast from Ruatoria, and it was spectacular scenery, amazing hospitality, living and working as one. Mina Mathieson on the one love cast and crew vibe, while producing The Pā Boys
