We are New Zealand

Eyes and Ears

“This is our home. This is who we choose to be.”

In 2019, the Christchurch mosque shootings shook the foundations of New Zealand.

This film is an artistic response to the shootings and all the issues of racism surrounding it. This is such an important project to us.

Together with a passionate team, we set out for a day around Auckland, filming real New Zealanders and their genuine reactions to the tragedy. 

We wanted to show off the beautiful diversity of Kiwis, from all walks of life – something that is more important now than ever.

The film is backed by a powerful poem that was written by Sabah Rahman and voiced by Jen Huang.
