"Out gathering stranded sheep, Toss' (Fiona Kay) father falls to his death; at the same moment, she hears the gunshots of an approaching poacher. In his muddy gum boots, the poacher, Ethan (Frank Whitten), carries her father's battered body back to the house. Tuba-playing, pajama-clad grandfather Birdie (Bill Kerr) encourages the stranger to stay, much to the initial disdain of both mother and daughter. Fleeing the sexual tension, Toss retreats to her playhouse in her hooded, woolly, hawk-like hat. It is only in the mirrors of her playhouse, and at last in the ghostly lights which Ethan shows her in his own hiding place, that the boyish Toss is able to explore her grief and accept the confusing first stirrings of womanhood"--Container
Rain of the children ( visu )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 52 libraries worldwide
Vincent Ward weaves drama with documentary to unravel the extraordinary story of Puhi, the Tuhoe woman who welcomed the young filmmaker into her home in 1978. Ward made the observational film In Spring One Plants Alone about Puhi's day-to-day life in the remote Urewera Ranges. By then almost 80, she was obsessively caring for her schizophrenic adult son Niki, whose violent fits terrified her. In this new cinema feature Ward sets out to unravel the mystery that has haunted him for 30 years: Who was Puhi? And why was she so obsessed with this last remaining son? Using his relationship with Puhi as the framework to explore her life, he finds a woman of extraordinary fortitude who, at the age of 12, was chosen by the great Tuhoe prophet Rua Kenana to marry his son, Whatu. Rua gave her the name, Puhi ("special one"). At 14, she had her first baby while hiding in the bush, having escaped from the 1916 police raid on Rua's community at Maungapohatu, where she witnessed the arrest of Rua and Whatu and the killing of Toko, Rua's other son, said to be her lover. She would go on to have 13 more children. But by the time Ward made his initial film, there were few signs of what had become of them. In Rain of the Children, he finds out how the loss of her children affected the course of her life. The tragedies she lived through were so powerful that some, including her, believed she was cursed. After a tumultuous second marriage and the manslaughter of her third husband, Puhi was left with her dependant son, Niki. She dedicated herself to this man-child, trying to protect him at all costs, even from beyond the grave. Rain of the Children is Ward's search for truth in the story of a woman who sought redemption through love and who has remained a touchstone for him throughout his life
