Loading Docs 2018 - Soldiers Road

Web (Full Length) – 2018

Taaniko Nordstrom and her sister Vienna are the creative duo behind Soldiers Rd Portraits, who create customised vintage portraits for indigenous people and often work with Māori inmates, reconnecting them with their whakapapa. Wellington filmmaker Louise Pattinson directed and edited this short documentary for the Loading Docs series. She focuses on Soldiers Road working with a group of Māori teenagers trying to find their place in the world. The teenagers tell their stories through letters to tipuna (ancestors), traditional costumes and ta moko.

We are the seeds of the combined DNA of our tipuna, and we represent a great whakapapa and history.
– Taaniko Nordstrom, co-founder of Soldiers Rd Portraits
