,Maori Boy Genius – Sydney Film Festival 2012,”Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them”. This line from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night resonates through the documentary Maori Boy Genius, about a young man being groomed for leadership. Director Pietra Brettkelly, camera in hand, shadowed Ngaa Rauuira Pumanawawhiti during his sixteenth year. Both of them talk about the experience.
The 2012 Sydney Film Festival runs from the 6th to 17th of June. Tickets are on sale now at http://www.sff.org.au
