Among the Cinders

Film (Excerpts) – 1983

M
Mature
With Among the Cinders, Rolf [Hädrich] was now trying to make a cinema feature, like many of those young directors he had trained in his earlier years at Nordeutsch Rundfunk. They had been successful — why shouldn’t he? A foreign location, exotic people — why not? Now that Rolf controlled the funds to make a low budget film, he tried to make much of the novel’s Māori content. It was hardly surprising that he also missed most of it, instead relying on those parts of the story that had succeeded in translation to German — the bond between the gruff old man and his grandson.
– Producer John O'Shea, from his memoirs: Don't Let it Get You, Page 147
