  5. Aloha Rena,
    I hope you are well!
    I am currently a lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington of Scenography in the Theatre Programme. It would be fantastic if we could reconnect as I am co-writing an article with my colleague David O’Donnell on sustainable scenography in the Pacific and I want to include your creative set design work that you developed while filming the fish eating scene for warrior women. It would be great if you could answer some questions. I would also like us to talk about the possibility of you giving some guest lectures with in our programme in the future. Mahalo Jim Davenport

  6. After re-discovering Once Were Warriors and just having seen it’s follow-up What Becomes of the Broken Hearted, I watched an interview with yourself on Youtube.

    Your project to get the film Behind the Tattoed Face looks an admirable venture, and I very much hope it is realised.

    Meanwhile, I will search out the book – all the best from the UK !

  7. Just wanted to say ‘Hello’ from the Smith Family. Hope all is well, recovered from winning the World Cup?????grrrr
    Love from our family & blessings…

  8. I think your performance in Once Were Warriors was one of the most overlooked in movie history. You deserved the Oscar (not the nomination). A truely remarkable, gut-wrentching film about a culture not many know about, but your performance could draw anyone to completelty relate to the Maori experience.

  9. Rena .Just read you are “filming’ “Behind the Tattoed Face”.This one of my fav NZ books and I am really looking forward to the movie.PS Would love to see a movie about the greatest migration in NZ history ie When Ngati Toa Rangatira,(and Ngati Raukawa,Ngati Mutunga,NgatiTama and te Ati Awa)came from Kawhia to Kapiti Island.
    Also when Te Puoho from Ngati Tama travelled down the westcoast of the south isaland and fought Kai Tahu.There is a monument near Mataura that says. Where the North fought the south and the south won.
