Omschrijving:

WHALE RIDER, W. Ihimaera"De gedempte donder dreunde onder water… Plotseling was de zee vervuld van een ontzagwekkend gezang, een lied van de eeuwigheid. Toen brak de walvis door het water en schrijlings op zijn kop zat een man. Hij was wonderbaarlijk om te zien. Hij was de walvisruiter.''Zo zette de stamvader van de Whangara-Maori's zo'n duizend jaar geleden voet aan land. Generatie na generatie werd hij opgevolgd door een mannelijke nazaat. Maar nu is er geen mannelijke opvolger beschikbaar - er is alleen Kahu, de elfjarige kleindochter van het huidige stamhoofd. En in de Maori-traditie telt een vrouw niet, zeker niet als het om leiderschap gaat. Wanneer honderden walvissen plotseling aanspoelen op het strand, blijkt het ene drama de uitweg uit het andere te bieden: de kleine Kahu beschikt over gaven van haar verre voorvader en redt zowel de heilige dieren als haar volk.Witi Ikimaera is een van de belangrijkste en productiefste Maori-auteurs van dit moment. Whale Rider werd verfilmd. De film won publiekssprijzen van het Sundance Filmfestival, het festival van Totonto en het Internationaal Film Festival Rotterdam.

Whale Rider heeft dan ook veel in huis om de kijker voor zich te winnen: een vertederende jonge hoofdpersoon, schitterende locaties, een duidelijke, positieve boodschap, plus enkele bovennatuurlijke ingrediënten. En walvissen. Volgens een oud Maori-verhaal maakten de voorvaders van de huidige Nieuw-Zeelanders per kano de overtocht vanuit Hawaï. Disregarded by her village, a Maori girl trains herself in the customs of her people to prove she's the rightful heir to her grandfather as chief. The whale mothers look over their young while the single leader whale—the bull whale—reminisces about his own youth so long ago, and the precious time he spent with the whale rider. Now, so many years after their separation, the nostalgia for their time spent together cuts away at the old bull whale. WHALE RIDER is set in the Maori community of New Zealand. According to legend, the Maori came to Whangara when their great leader Paikea led them by riding on a whale. Ever since, the Maori have been led by the descendants of that leader. The movie begins with the birth of twins, the latest in that line. But the boy twin and his mother die. Whale Rider can be enjoyed by adults, like myself, or with older children as well. Some of it may upset young children. ... Whales figure, largely, in their folk-lore and in the film's denouement - 'nuf said. Altogether, a feel-good film for relaxing, non-taxing viewing. Read more. Love, rejection and triumph as a young, Maori girl, Paikea, fights to fulfil a destiny her grandfather steadfastly refuses to recognize. Whale Rider aims to sketch the life of (modern) Maori, centring its focus on the story of Paikea - a twelve-year-old girl who aspires to become the tribe's chief against the will of her conservative grandfather in whose mind such a leading role belongs to males only. In a small New Zealand coastal village, Maori claim descent from Paikea, the Whale Rider. In every generation for over 1,000 years, a male heir born to the Chief succeeds to the title. The time is now. The Chief's eldest son, Porourangi, fathers twins - a boy and a girl. But the boy and hi...
