These short films, many award-winning, all share a focus on wāhine and have Māori and/or Polynesian creative input in key roles. Many of the directors are themselves wāhine. These films were selected by Turnbull Gallery curators Catherine Bisley and Ariana Tikao to support the current exhibition, Wāhine: Beyond the Dusky Maiden, at the gallery which Ngā Taonga is proud to support. The films in Selection Three are listed below:
