          A South Auckland petrol station is the setting for this independent drama about graveyard shift worker Tania (Sophie Henderson, also the film's writer and based on her one-woman stageplay), whose long nights are spent chipping away at the savings she needs to leave with her littl...e brother in search of their father. Raised Maori, Tania's bonds to her whanau underpin a life spent caring for her ailing mother during the day and preparing to take her brother Piwakawaka overseas. But as he leaves to pick kiwifruit and Tania is stuck at the gas station with a slack manager and an eagle-eyed regional supervisor, it seems she's not able to look after her family to the same extent. A product of the NZ Film Commission's Escalator scheme, this low-budget feature, shot in just 20 days, brings Henderson's piece to the big screen courtesy of first-time director Curtis Vowell

          On the 24th of March 1944, two hundred and twenty allied airmen huddle silently in a German POW camp in Poland. After months of planning, they are about to attempt an escape of unbelievable magnitude and logistics. The event will be recorded in history and known as The Great Esca...pe. Among them is World War II's first Maori pilot, Porokoru Patapu Pohe (also known as John Pohe). He has only been in the camp for 6 months but in that time, he has managed to make his way up the list of escapees to number 65 of 220. He has completed a tour of duty and cheated death a number of times, earning himself the nickname Lucky Johnny. Turangaarere is the story of his incredible life.
