Written and directed by Tearepa Kahi (Mt Zion) and starring Maaka Pohatu (The Modern Maori Quartet, Two Little Boys) the film tells the story of musician Dalvanius Prime and the origin of the song “Poi E”, a ground-breaking fusion of 1980s pop and traditional Māori music. “Poi E”, composed by Dalvanius and Ngoingoi Pēwhairangi and performed by the Patea Māori Club, remains the only song in Te Reo Māori to reach No 1 in the charts, over 30 years since its 1984 release.

Poi E: The Story of Our Song movie full length review - See this if you can

This has to be one of the best documentaries I have seen. The story behind the song is fascinating. Dalvanius Prime was obviously a larger than life type of character who managed to make the almost impossible happen for the small town of Patea.

Those of us who were around at the time remember the impact of this song on the nation of New Zealand.

The documentary has been made with loving care and a desire to honour those involved. It was nice touch to have Taika Waititi and Stan Walker honouring the song with their comments.

This movie tells the story of the song and its impact in a very honest and entertaining way. Thoroughly recommend seeing this :-)
