Released in Kiwi cinemas in August 2009 after winning praise at festivals in Berlin and Rotterdam. The Strength of Water marks the big screen debut of Māori playwright Briar Grace-Smith and Pākehā director Armagan Ballantyne. The film centres on a 10-year-old twin brother and sister in an isolated part of the Hokianga, and the events that follow when they encounter a young stranger. The Strength of Water merges a spare, naturalistic portrait of a Māori family struggling to stay above water, with moody images of earth and sea, loss and new beginnings.
