Rūrangi

Web (Trailer) – 2020

Caz (newcomer Elz Carrad) has returned home to Rūrangi, the farming town he grew up in, the town that knew him as a girl. His transition from female to male caused a family rift, and his work as a LBGT activist has left him tired and vulnerable. In Rūrangi he finds a new cause, and an old friend. Set for online release after debuting at the 2020 NZ International Film Festival, the web series was written by queer activist Cole Meyerson, and directed by Queer Nation's Max Currie. The Rūrangi team embraced a gender diverse, inclusive kaupapa from page to screen. The cast includes Kirk Torrance and Ramon Te Wake.

We’re not interested in seeing another story told about us, any more transition stories, trauma or tropes. These are so often about how other people see us, how other people experience us. We want to see stories on screen made by us.
– Rūrangi writer and co-producer Cole Meyerson, on the NZ International Film Festival website
