I te hōtoke nei kua pau te 40 tau mai i te Tāpoinga nanakia nei a ngā Springboks. Ka tūhuratia e tā tātou whakaaturanga hou te pikinga o te riri i waenga i ngā kaiporotēhe, i ngā pirihimana, i ngā kaiwhai whutupaoro me ngā tāngata tōrangapū, me te pēhea a te pāho a ngā kaipāho kāwanatanga, kaimahi kiriata whakatūtū hoki. Tirohia ēnei kaponga o PATU! (1983), koia tēnei ko te tino pakipūmeka porotēhe nā Merata Mita i tohutohu, ana, akohia hoki te huarahi i taki ai ngā wero e ngā kaimahi o Ngā Taonga ki te rokiroki i te kiriata nei. Kei Te Gallery o Te Puna a TOHE | PROTEST, kei te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa mai i te Paraire te 23 o Hōngongoi tae noa ki te Rāhoroi te 22 o Hakihea.
This winter marks 40 years since the notorious Springbok Tour. Our new exhibition will explore how the escalating tensions between activists, the police, rugby fans and politicians were presented by both government broadcasters and activist filmmakers. See excerpts from PATU! (1983), the definitive protest documentary directed by Merata Mita, and learn how Ngā Taonga staff overcame many challenges to preserve this iconic film. TOHE | PROTEST will run in Te Puna Gallery at the National Library in Wellington from Friday 23 July till Saturday 22 December.
