Tā Moko - Behind the Tattooed Face
Maori face tattooing, tā moko, is a tradition that almost died out through colonization. Bernard and Sapphire are passionate about seeing Maori communities unite and heal through rediscovering their customs. This film follows their pain and triumph as they receive face tattoos of their own.
