"The Silent One tells the story of Jonasi, a uniquely gifted young Polynesian man sent from the sea as a baby to grow up in an isolated Pacific village. Separated from the villagers by his silence and their prejudices, Jonasi finds solace in his underwater world where he develops a special relationship with a huge white turtle"--Container
Mauri( Visual )

6 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merata Mita, the second Maori (the first was Barry Barclay - see Ngati) and the first Maori woman to direct a feature film, sees Mauri as being a parable 'about the schizophrenic existence of many Maori in pakeha society ... a probing enquiry into concepts of culture using birth, marriage and death'. The themes of birthright and identity are woven into personal and community relationship throughout the film, ambiguously in the figure of Rewi and most fully through the old aunt Kara, who represents female power imparting a sense of life force (Mauri). Perhaps the aspect of the film which pakeha (white) audiences have found challenging is Mita's intention of replacing the familiar cause and effect in film narrative with what she describes as 'layering' of the story which is based on a certain oral tradition. In place of the thrust of a 'what happens next' plotline the viewer is invited to peel away layers of meaning to reveal the depths of interrelationships

"Rapa Nui" oder "Der Nabel der Welt" nennt die einheimische Bevölkerung der Osterinseln ihr pazifisches Inselparadies. Doch im Paradies kriselt es: Nicht nur, dass hier die Natur schamlos ausgebeutet wird, zu allem Überfluss haben die aristokratischen "Langohren" die Menschen der "Kurzohren" lange genug wie Sklaven behandelt. Widerwillen und gar Widerstand machen sich breit und zum rebellischen Treiben gesellt sich noch eine Geschichte um Liebe und Eifersucht

Die Osterinsel heit in der Sprache der Insulaner "Rapa Nui"--Nabel der Welt. Sie ist die entlegenste bewohnte Insel der Welt - 3700 km vom südamerikanischen Festland entfernt. Ihre Einwohner schufen die sagenumwobenen Vulkangesteinsskulpturen, genant "Moais". Als die Osterinsel 1722 entdeckt wurde, war ihre blühende Kultur zerstört. Um die Moais zu errichten, hatten die Bewohner den gesamten Baumbestand der Insel abgeholzt. Es kam zu einer Hungersnot, die im Kannibalismus endete. Auf Rapa Nui herrschen die Langohren über die Kurzohren, die unter Lebensgefahr die Moais errichten müssen. Der senile Häuptling Ariki-Mau gibt immer gröere Moais in Auftrag, um den Geistern seiner Vorväter zu gefallen. die geschundenen, hungrigen Arbeiter murren dagegen auf. Die Situation spitzt sich so zu, da Ariki-Mau dem Kurzohrenkrieger Make gewähren mu, am "Vogelmann-Rennen" teilzunehmen, um eine Rebellion zu vermeiden. Das Rennen entscheidet darüber, welcher Clan der Langohren im nächsten Jahr regiert. Noro, der Enkelsohn von Ariki-Mau, geht nur widerwillig in das tödliche Rennen, bei dem ein Vogelei unbeschadet von einem Felsen vor der Insel zurückgebracht werden mu. Dafür verlangt er, die Kurzohrfrau Ramana heiraten zu dürfen. Aber auch Ramana - und Noros knapper Sieg über Make löst einen Aufstand aus, an deren Ende die Inselbewohner sich zerfleischen
