Erua

Television (Full Length) – 1988

"Thy eternal summer shall not fade ..."
– Toss (Grant Tilly) reads a Shakespearian sonnet to Erua (Turei Reedy)
He wasn't easy to draw. To me my drawings didn't look at all 'Māori'. His features I could draw, but this other thing was 'elusive'. And elusiveness is always a quality I shall find ... irresistible.
– From Toss's (Grant Tilly's) voice-over
I'm not that sort of painter. I paint paintings [not the Harbour Bridge, like Erua's cousin]
– 'Toss' (Grant Tilly) explains to Erua (Turei Reedy) what he does
