Journalist Kim Webby's The Price of Peace follows Tūhoe activist Tame Iti, whose family Webby has known for more than 20 years. As this opening excerpt shows, Iti was one of four people to go on trial — accused of plotting terrorist activities — after police raids in October 2007. The documentary ranges from early land grievances to modern-day jail cells, and a police apology. NZ Herald reviewer Peter Calder praised the film for its personal focus on Iti — and for “a powerfully affecting” examination of the 2007 raids which placed them in "the wider context of Tūhoe history and the process of reconciliation”.
... a powerfully affecting re-examination of the Ruatoki raids that achieves something rather special: maintaining a personal, even intimate, focus on its central figure Tame Iti, it locates the 2007 police raids in the wider context of Tūhoe history and the process of reconciliation.– Reviewer Peter Calder in The NZ Herald, 16 July 2015
