- TOHE | PROTEST
TOHE | PROTEST
In 1981, South Africa’s Springbok rugby team toured New Zealand. TOHE | PROTEST is an exhibition from that explores how the escalating tensions between activists, the police, rugby fans and politicians were presented by both government broadcasters and activist filmmakers.
The definitive protest documentary of the anti-Tour protest movement was 1983’s PATU! To mark the 40th anniversary of the Tour, Ngā Taonga created a new digital preservation copy of the film (see Preserving PATU! ). Hear from the team about technical challenges they encountered and how they worked with kaitiaki to honour the original vision of the filmmakers. We also talk to some of those who experienced the Tour – what would you do in their shoes?
