We’ve seen her on stamps, postcards, tea towels and various other tourist paraphernalia. Yet few of us know the true story behind PANIA OF THE REEF, whom local hapu have long held dear as a beloved ancestor, a woman and mother whose heart was caught between two worlds. This documentary is about PANIA OF THE REEF; the statue on Napier’s foreshore, the story surrounding its commission and manufacture, and the woman whose real life story was enshrined in Maori lore.
