New Zealander Nova Paul’s film This is not Dying records everyday scenes from around her family Marae and Maori community, in the north of the North Island. This is not Dying looks to the past while engaging the present: its communities, technologies and politics. In so doing, Paul walks us into a different future, perhaps opening up a space to consider how communities based on traditions of Te Ao Maori can help navigate the pitfalls of a fragmented and globalised era.
