Movie of the Day: We Are Still Here (2022) by Various Directors

Ten leading Indigenous filmmakers from Australia, Aotearoa (New Zealand), and the South Pacific (Chantelle Burgoyne, Dena Curtis, Richard Curtis, Mario Gaoa, Danielle MacLean

Miki Magasiva, Renae Maihi, Tracey Rigney, Tim Worrall, Beck Cole) craft a compellingly original and insightful anthology film in response to the 250th anniversary of an historically celebrated colonizer’s invasion of their lands. We Are Still Here is the collective work of 10 Indigenous filmmakers from Australia, Aotearoa (New Zealand), and Pasifika (the Pacific Islander nations of Sāmoa, Tonga, the Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau, Tuvalu, and some smaller domains) who share an octet of stories resonating with the rich, complex histories and present realities of their region. Created as a cinematic response to the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s uninvited arrival in the South Pacific, the film is both a stirring response to a colonial icon’s harmful legacy and a strong statement of Indigenous resilience and vitality in the face of persistent oppression.
