Mataku was a series of half-hour dramatic narratives steeped in Māori experience with the “unexplained”. Two South Pacific Pictures-produced series screened on TV3; a later series screened on TV One in 2005.
Devine Intervention – Mai Te Hohonu
Tama is a small town taxi driver that decides to go to extreme measures to drive his competition out of town by summoning up a Taniwha that ends up having an agenda of its own.
Tama soon realises that desire to drive the other taxi driver out of town has backfired and he learns that there is a high price to pay for his folly.
