In 2012 New Zealand actor, Rawiri Paratene (Whale Rider), was given the prestigious honour of being invited to open the “greatest Shakespearian festival of our time” at the legendary Globe Theatre in London. The ‘Globe to Globe’ festival would feature thirty seven plays from thirty seven countries in thirty seven languages.
Spanning the twelve-week period before Opening Night, Road to the Globe follows Rawiri as he forms his company, Ngakau Toa, consisting of New Zealand’s best Maori actors and their journey as they prepare to take their exquisite Te Reo Maori adaption of William Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida to the Globe.
Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the FIFO Film Festival in French Polynesia in Feb. 2012, the documentary is screening in New Zealand.
