Whetū Mārama Bright Star

In recognition of Matariki, Corban Estate Arts Centre is delighted to share a screening of the award-winning feature-length documentary Whetū Mārama: Bright Star (2022), with thanks to directors Toby Mills and Aileen Sullivan.

Whetū Mārama: Bright Star is the story of Sir Hekenukumai Ngaiwi Puhipi (Hek Busby), and his significance to Te Ao Māori in rekindling their wayfinding DNA – and to all New Zealanders in reclaiming our place as traditional star voyagers on the world map.

The Cellar opens at 6pm for refreshments, including movie snacks, seafood chowder and frybread available for purchase. Film screening begins at 6.45pm in the Heritage Theatrette.
