Hero image for Made in Taiwan

Made in Taiwan

Television (Full Length) – 2006

When I was little and I used to read books about genies giving three wishes, I think the first wish was always like heaps of money. The second wish was nothing bad to happen to my family and the third wish always just to see where Polynesians came from.
– Oscar Kightley
The weird thing about journeying back through my past is it's not only my history I'm tracing. It's that of all my Māori relies who share my DNA.
– Nathan Rarere
Taiwan was incredible. All the connections came together — language, culture, people. It was strange to realise that after this whole journey we didn't even need the DNA. We looked the same. We felt at home. In every cell in our body we carried the same DNA.
