After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie called ‘Whale rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2
The whale rider is about a Maori girl named Paikea who came from a long line of chiefs. She was hungry to learn about the chiefdom but it was only for men. Paikea secretly attended the meetings to become a chief. Her Koro was stubborn and he only went by the traditional rules. When the children did it differently he got angry. I rate this movie 4.5/5 because the background story is good and the film itself is well done.
