The Violence Free Network Wairarapa and ChangeAbility invites you to a NZIFF Feature Film 'Waru'.

Eight Māori female directors have each contributed a sequence to this powerful and challenging feature which unfolds around the tangi of a small boy who died at the hands of his caregiver.

“When a child is killed every five weeks there is no other way to tackle abuse other than confronting it, head on.”
- Mihingarangi Forbes

Supporting young people in an age of pornography:
Over the past decade or so, pornography has become both more mainstream and more hardcore. For young people growing up in this era of ever-new and accessible technology it is almost impossible to avoid exposure to pornography.

Porn has become the default sexuality educator for young people growing up online. Consumption – particularly for young men – has become normalised. And the ways young people understand and experience gender and sex are being influenced by what they – or their partners or peers – observe in porn, with serious implications for their capacity to negotiate free and full consent, for mutual respect, for sexual health, and for gender equality.
