Summary
Paraiti is the healer and midwife of her rural, tribal people in New Zealand. But new laws prohibiting unlicensed healers, make the practice of much Maori medicine illegal. She gets approached by Maraea (Rachel House, *Hunt for the Wilderpeople*), the servant of a wealthy woman, Rebecca, who seeks her knowledge and assistance in order to hide a secret which could destroy Rebecca’s position in European settler society. This compelling story tackles moral dilemmas, exploring the nature of identity, societal attitudes to the roles of women and the tension between Western and traditional Maori medicine. Nominated for ten **New Zealand Film and TV Awards.** Official Selection at the **Toronto International Film Festival**. "*White Lies is essential cinema, unafraid to delve into female issues even contemporary societies grapple with.*" - Tomris Laffly, ***Film Journal International***
