"Poi E," a simple song with a catchy beat released 32 years ago, has become New Zealand’s unofficial national anthem. With humour, energy, and emotion, the movie "Poi E: The Story of Our Song" is the story of how that iconic song gave pride to generations of New Zealanders. From Taika Waititi giving Stan Walker his quirky take on life in the 1980s to Patea Maori Club members’ straight-talking and funny memories of the song’s visionary originator Dalvanius Prime, director Tearepa Kahi (Mt Zion) captures a unique story that taps into the heart of the nation.

"As irresistible as the song it celebrates, Tearepa Kahi’s documentary explores the many tributaries that flowed into the mash-up of pop music, traditional waiata, and bop that first took New Zealand by storm in 1984." – NZ International Film Festival.
